  • TNT-Caroline Drives With a Team of 4

    11 MAR. 2024 · She defied the male dominated field back when female truck drivers were not only unwelcome but often harassed by good-ole-boy truckers. Well, she challenged them and won...for almost 40 years! She is still driving and doesn't know when she will ever quit, simply because she loves the road and the job...and the money isn’t bad! Often driving long-haul over-the-road can be lonely, but not for Caroline Carter. Nope! She has her alcohol to keep her happy.  She loves her Irish Whiskey, Irish Cream, and of course a little Rosé.  Just listen. Caroline is a feisty driver who is quick to encourage women to consider the trucking industry as a satisfying and well-paying career.  (after all, we're told that there is a serious driver shortage)

  • TNT-MacKenzie Was Warned About Trucking

    18 FEB. 2024 · She was warned, “you will be raped or killed”. Unfortunately, after all these years, the trucking industry is still faced with a negative stereotypical image by the general public. Therefore, it's not easy encouraging women to join the trucking industry. Our guest MacKenzie Melton was warned terrible things would happen to her physically and emotionally if she became a truck driver. Well, we talked to MacKenzie and she is perfectly fine. In fact, more than just fine. But how she suddenly became interested in trucking is interesting in itself, demonstrates that sometimes it just takes a simple positive unassuming role model and a company that cares about the image of their drivers. Listen to MacKenzie's story.

  • TNT-Sherry Muckleston at UPS

    4 FEB. 2024 · Have you seen those little brown vans in your neighborhood. Or maybe you had one come to your door to deliver something really important and time sensitive. Yes, I’m referring to those UPS vans. Well, this week on my TNT Podcast I am talking to another lady in what might be a non-traditional job…but a rewarding one. Her name is Sherry Muckleston. She drove one of those brown vans picking up and delivering time sensitive parcels. Funny…parcel sounds like an old-fashioned way to say package but UPS is the United Parcel Service. Back in 1907, when Claude Ryan and Jim Casey launched the company with $100 loan, “parcel” was the word. A lot has happened since then and I am sure that that back then you rarely if ever saw a woman driving one of those vans. Well even today, most drivers are male. It’s not an easy job and it requires some physical strength. You need to be able to lift at least 70 pounds. That didn’t stop my guest, Sherry Muckleston. Listen!

  • TNT-Alex Kis - The Truck Mechanic

    21 ENE. 2024 · This is another in our TNT series on women in non-traditional trades and careers. We decided to call them TNT Women. The Non Traditional. This week, we talk to a lady who has chosen a career that places her among men…often tough strong males. She chose to be a mechanic…and not just any Toyota or Chevy Malibu mechanic. That would be non-traditional enough….no she chose to be study and become a truck mechanic…and not just a Ford F-150 truck…we’re talking a big rig truck mechanic. Her name is Alex Kis. I wanted to know how she survived in an all class male class…and then after a successful graduation, how touch was it to get hired in a male dominated field. How would she be accepted in a testosterone filled environment out there on the floor in the shop. She has quite a story to tell.

    21 ENE. 2024 · Angela Baltkois had a vision She saw a blank canvas and decided to paint it, with the result being a win-win for two divergent industries...one with a blank canvas, and the other with a message. In 2013, Angela Baltkois founded Big Rig Wraps Transport Truck Advertising, after identifying an untouched out-of-home marketing medium: transport truck advertising on independently owned fleets. Recognizing that only large companies with their own fleets were maximizing the benefits of non-competing ads on large vehicles, Angela created a business model where all-sized businesses can buy large-scale ads on trucks ranging from 20 feet to 53 feet. Currently, Big Rig Wraps partners with more than 50 reputable and well-known fleet owners who make their big rigs and their routes available to advertisers who want to generate more sales. Angela proves that there is a place for women in or working for the trucking industry. Listen to her story and hear her tell how she built this company, Big Rig Wraps. https://www.bigrigwraps.ca/about-us/angela-baltkois/
