Researcher: The women and men in shipping

What does the typical shipping woman - and man - look like? Here is one version, from an anthropologist who spent three months following the trainees and employees at a shipping company.

There is a big difference between the typical man and woman in the shipping industry, anthropologist Michael Flarup tells ShippingWatch. While a male employee in shipping is typically very outgoing, calling attention to himself, the typical woman in shipping acts in a more subtle way.

"The typical male trainee is in his early 20s. He's slim, fit, and well groomed, and always clean shaven. He dresses in suits, from upscale stores, with leather shoes and, preferably, unique cufflinks," says Michael Flarup.
