JF Moran, a national customs broker and freight forwarder, is proud to announce national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Center for Women in Enterprise, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

“As a young professional in the ‘80’s, I would attend industry events and it would not be unusual for me to be one of a very small group of women in the room. Thirty-five years later, the number of women in the logistics industry is increasing, but there is still a lot of room for growth. My sister, Vicki Black, and I are proud to be doing more than just talking the talk in our commitment to encouraging women to take a role in our industry with more than 75% of our employees at JF Moran being women. Being certified as a women-owned enterprise is a visible demonstration of the importance we place upon a diversified and empowering workplace.” Betty Robson.

WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the CWE is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.

By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
