Women Into Transport & Women In Warehousing
There is no denying that the UK transport industry is dominated by men. However, Skills for Logistics is trying to do something about this with their Women Into Transport initiative.
So long as you meet their criteria (e.g. currently work in the logistics industry in a non-driving role), they will help you to get your Class C driving licence plus an NVQ in Driving Goods Vehicles.
Skills for Logistics also have another initiative called Women In Warehousing which is designed to help develop the skills and confidence of women who work within warehousing.
UPDATE: I have been advised this scheme is no longer running. A website for women in the haulage and transport industry can be found at Women in Logistics.
