Women in Trucking

Women who inspire

 

We are honored to have talented women who work with us. They inspire us. And they motivate us through their leadership and work ethic.

 

Aside from being on the road, these women provide mentorship and support for other women who drive. They stand up and face adversity. They are strong and make the company — and their communities — a better place to be. CRST is so proud of them and would like to share their stories below.

Watch their secrets to success
