GET AN IRON WOMAN BEHIND THE WHEEL IN YOUR FLEET
Women are significantly under-represented in the heavy-duty truck-driving industry,
The Iron Women initiative is aimed at improving road safety and addressing skilled driver shortages in South Africa.
Over the past couple of years, the successful Iron Women candidates have proven their worth and are employed by some of the leading transport and logistics companies in South Africa
With some 14 000 deaths on South Africa’s roads every year, road safety is, and remains, a major challenge, with a critical shortage of skilled commercial drivers here contributing to the country’s unacceptably high road accident statistics.
Iron Women is designed to impact the industry and the country by training women to become heavy-duty truck drivers, empowering women through education and employment.
The success of the Iron Women programme brings to South Africa’s heavy-duty truck-driving industry a number of critical benefits.
