Supporting Women In Transportation

Women are underrepresented in our industry, and we’re looking to change that. At Saia, our goal is simple: get more women behind the wheel. It starts with the welcoming and supportive environment we’ve created – then it’s elevated by our industry-leading training program. We’re excited to have been repeatedly named one of Women In Trucking’s “Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation” by Redefining the Road  magazine.
