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.

FROM OUR CUSTOMERS

"The best LTL service then, and now. Outbound or in, Averitt's team of professionals are there to assist with quality service and a commitment to customers rarely seen in business today. Thanks for 50 years of great service - you are more than a freight carrier, you are a business partner!"

"Since I started using Averitt over 10 years ago we have saved thousands in freight cost. They are the only carrier I trust to deliver on time as quoted, and with no damage. They deliver on time, and with no damage 99% of the time. Averitt will be around for 50 more years for sure."

Dave K.

"My "go to" carrier is always Averitt.  I do not have just one memory where you went above and beyond for me and my customers, I have so many memories. Averitt is the easiest and, in my opinion, best carrier out there! From the customer service down the drivers, I recommend them to everyone I know."
