Women in Trucking

Fuso NZ has joined the Women in Trucking Association to support diversity in the industry

Welcome to the Fuso NZ ‘Women in Trucking’ page, where we are showcasing some of the news, views and stories of women working in our industry.

Promoting Diversity in the Workforce

As a people-focused business, inclusivity is one of Fuso NZ’s core values. We aim to be a leading voice for increased opportunity and greater diversity within the workforce. We have joined forces with the Women in Trucking Association as one way of helping to achieve that goal.

Please contact Alexandra Gilchrist for more information.
