Women In Trucking (WIT) has announced a third-generation female truck driver, Jacinda Duran, as its February 2020 Member of the Month. Duran has been around trucking her entire life. With many of her family members being in the industry, it was inevitable to her that she would be, too. Her mother was a professional truck driver for 23 years and often took Duran with her on the job. Her father drove dump trucks and cement trucks. Her grandmother hauled produce in California for over 50 years. Her grandfather did his truck driving in the 1950s. They even have a relative who appeared on the television series, Shipping Wars. Ten years ago, Duran started her logistics career at FedEx Express as a courier, then transitioned into big rigs in 2014. She has experience driving limos, buses, charter buses and everything in between. Currently, Duran drives for Plycar Transportation based in Kings Park, New York, as an enclosed car carrier, and her passion for trucking was a great fit for their elite trucking team. She was trained through their six-week program to transport, load and unload unique, one-of-a-kind cars, and became their first solo female enclosed car carrier. Since then, Duran has driven from coast to coast and in all 48 states. She has been in this role for one year and says the best thing about her job is the freedom. Through her social media platform (Jacinda Lady Truck’n), she continues to inspire women to reach for the stars. Passion and goal setting are her way of life – she makes every day an adventure and continues to explore this great country. “I stay out on the road for a long period of time, living in my truck. I get to travel the country, seeing friends, making new friends and living the best life out on the road. I am blessed and thank God every day for my health, my life and my blessings,” said Duran. Duran is a proud mother of two children – her daughter is in nursing school at Northern Arizona University and her son is a cadet in the US Air Force Academy, obtaining a degree in Aero Engineering. Formed in 2007, Women In Trucking is an organization that strives to encourage employment, promote accomplishments, and minimize the obstacles faced by women working in the trucking industry. And whether you’re a professional driver, mid-management or a high-level professional with a shipping company, motor carrier, 3PL or driving school, you’ll find value in joining the ranks of WIT’s diverse membership of over 5,300 members (men and women).
