“We already have dozens of women behind the wheel, serving customers as both city and over-the-road drivers at terminals throughout our network,” said Steve Blubaugh, Holland’s Vice President of Human Resources. “These professionals prove every day that being a driver can be a satisfying career choice for both women and men. We are always eager to speak with potential new employees, both female and male, who are able to meet our high standards for safety, service and reliability. I hope our involvement with the Women in Trucking organization encourages more women to consider careers as professional drivers–and specifically, drivers for Holland–as a career option.”
