Women are gradually asserting their influence in the freight sector, challenging the long-standing male dominance and showcasing the positive impact they can bring to the industry.

As the owner and director of Breeze Shipping, Michelle Maharaj acknowledges the invaluable contribution of women to workplace efficiency and productivity.

“While the freight sector still predominantly operates in a male-dominated environment, there is a noticeable shift as women assume more leadership positions and play pivotal roles in the industry,” she told Freight News, emphasising that despite progress, there remained a challenge in altering some outdated mindsets that fail to take women seriously.

Sharing her experiences of encountering male colleagues who dismissed her input simply because of her gender, Maharaj said it was crucial for women not to back away from the table but continue to forge ahead, highlighting the difference they made in the workplace.
