Ekol Awaits Female Truck Drivers

Having adopted gender equality as a corporate goal, Ekol Logistics offers women aspiring to become truck drivers employment opportunities. Ekol currently employs twice as many female employees as the world average in the logistics industry by providing numerous opportunities across the company. And the company is now expanding its fleet with female drivers.

Female truck driver candidates can send their job applications to [email protected] Successful applicants will receive theoretical and practical training by Ekol and prepare to hit the road as part of the company’s domestic and international operations. Candidates who hold a driver’s license and can show a moderate level of relevant experience will receive priority during the selection process.
