Women Moving Australia – August 2015
Women Moving Australia
This month we’ve crossed the country to bring you profiles of some incredible women who are leading the pack in the transport and logistics industry.
Road Transport and Ports are two sectors which traditionally struggle with female representation – however, over the past couple of years we have seen a few examples of where women are coming together to support each other and make their mark on the industry.
Lyndal Denny is the co-founder of Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls. Her time these days is predominately spent working with colleague Heather Jones on the establishment of a National Heavy Vehicle Driver Training Institute in Karratha. Lyndal still covers plenty of territory when she’s behind the wheel – last month she drove a 150 tonne fully loaded quad on a 1,800 km round trip from Karratha to Broome.
