Wow, that went by fast.

Averitt_50th v2

In some ways, 1971 seems like only yesterday. Back then, we were "Tennessee's Carrier," hauling dry goods between Nashville and Livingston with just three tractors and two associates.
Now, we're known throughout the country as a leader in the industry and there's scarcely a part of the globe we haven't reached.
That kind of growth doesn't happen without customers like you.
It doesn't matter how committed a company is to doing things the right way - to treating people like family and treating each load like it's priceless - having the right customers makes all the difference.
You've made this journey possible; with your trust, your loyalty, and your friendship.
So, on this Golden Anniversary, we wanted to say thank you.
Thank you for the past we've shared.
Truth is, we're proud of it.
And we're even more excited for the future we're building together.
Because as far as we're concerned, this is just the beginning.

Over our 50 year history, one thing has been abundantly consistent - our people's dedication to helping our customers succeed.

One focus. One direction. That's the Power of One.

What is the Power of One?

Our biggest strength is our people. 

From drivers, dock workers, mechanics, to customer service experts, everyday this team works to serve you.

Whether you need to make a local move fast or on a mission to get a shipment halfway around the world, Averitt is the best place to turn.

Do you have any memories from our first 50 years?

Just as our team has grown since 1971, so has yours!

We are excited about all of our partnerships and relationships with shippers throughout our service area.

We hope that those relationships will continue to grow and develop over the next 50 years (and beyond!). 

Have any great memories to share? We'd love to hear from you about how your relationship with Averitt started, has grown, or has helped you and your company. 

We can't wait to hear from you!


For 50 years, we've been working with shippers like you to develop partnerships that are mutually beneficial. Here are some comments from just a few of our partners:

I know, most importantly, that Averitt has my back and they'll go beyond the call of duty to deliver for me in any capacity - whether it's LTL, Truckload, even Expedited. If I need to get it somewhere on time, I trust Averitt.

Averitt is not looking for transactional business. They're looking for partners and long-term relationships and it shows in the quality of people that they have.
