Women In Trucking Honors Lisa Mitchell for Trucking Achievements

The Women In Trucking Association recently announced its 2023 Top Women to Watch in Transportation, which includes TransForce’s Regional Vice President of the Western Territory, Lisa Mitchell, for her outstanding contributions to the transportation industry.

Lisa has been a devoted and passionate leader with TransForce for over 20 years. During her time with the company, she has consistently demonstrated her commitment to uncovering solutions that benefit carriers and drivers. 

"Trucking is a great industry. It is unique and offers many opportunities to drivers and carriers alike. I would encourage anyone, regardless of their background, to consider trucking as a career path, especially women," said Lisa Mitchell, Regional Vice President of the Western Territory at TransForce.

Lisa's passion for the industry led her to take on complex legislation and become an expert on California's AB5 legislation to advocate for her client’s best interests. 

Lisa's leadership and activism in the local court system led her to develop a solution that would benefit both carriers and drivers. As a result, her efforts helped hundreds of drivers retain their routes. 

"Getting involved in local legislation is more accessible than most think. I urge drivers and companies to learn and understand our laws. Knowledge is power; the more you know, the better you can protect yourself,” says Lisa. 

Lisa is a role model for other women in the transportation industry, and her dedication and passion have made her an exceptional leader and valued employee at TransForce. The company proudly celebrates her achievements and looks forward to her continued success.

"Lisa's dedication to benefit our customers and company is a testament to her core values and commitment to excellence," said Dennis Cooke, President and CEO of TransForce. "We are honored to have Lisa on our team and celebrate the achievements of all the women named in the 2023 Top Women to Watch in Transportation and who work at TransForce.”  

TransForce is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace, and the company recognizes the importance of celebrating the accomplishments of women in the industry.
