Tiffany Hanna Wins Volvo Truck For Essay Promoting Women In Trucking


Tiffany Hanna, professional driver and trainer at Prime, Inc., is now an owner-operator thanks to the Women In Trucking Association and Arrow Truck Sales.

Hanna is the winner of a 2014 Volvo VNL670. She was selected from the applicants who submitted an essay on the importance of attracting more women into the trucking industry.

“Women need to know they can be successful in trucking and can do the job just as well, IF not better, than a man,” Hanna wrote. She has been an advocate for female drivers at Prime, Inc. and serves on the Prime Driver Advisory Board. She is also active with the Highway Diamonds celebration hosted by Prime, Inc. annually to honor their female drivers.

Hanna is a U.S. Navy Veteran, and the mother of 5 children. She resides in St. Peters, Missouri. She has been at Prime, Inc. since 2014 and a trainer for the past four years.

WIT President/CEO Ellen Voie announced the winner on March 24, 2018 during the 9th annual “Salute to Women Behind the Wheel,” at the Mid-America Trucking Show at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky.

“We are thrilled to hand over the keys to Tiffany, who has been an advocate for women in the trucking industry by mentoring and supporting the women and men at Prime, Inc.,” said Voie. “This is truly the chance of a lifetime, thanks to Arrow Truck Sales and their very generous donation,” Voie added.
