Averitt Express has been named to Inbound Logistics’ (IL) annual Top 100 Truckers list.
Carriers that make the list are selected by a team of editors from the transportation and logistics publication. The publication bases its annual selections off a variety of surveys, questionnaires, online research and interviews with both shippers and professional drivers.
“The importance of cooperation and collaboration between shipper and trucker has never been greater as a result of the disruption and challenges we all face,” said IL editor Felecia Stratton. “IL's audience depends on their trucking partners to help meet the increasingly stringent demands of their customers. They also depend on IL to help identify the sector leaders.”
Celebrating its 50th anniversary in October, Averitt started out as a small, local carrier that hauled dry goods mostly between Nashville, TN and Livingston, TN. Today, the company employs nearly 9,000 associates and moves freight around the globe.
“We are humbled to be recognized in the industry for the dedication that our drivers and associates bring to the job every single day,” said Averitt president and chief operating officer Wayne Spain. “For 50 years, we have built a professional culture that strives to go above and beyond for our customers wherever and whenever we can.”
