COOKEVILLE, Tenn. — SupplyChainBrain, an online publication of supply chain news and information, has recognized Averitt in its 100 Great Supply Chain Partners of 2018 list.
Each year, the publication's readers nominate partners in logistics, technology and other areas of supply chain management that go above and beyond to help them achieve their business goals. Those that receive the most nominations ultimately make the final list.
According to the publication, selected nominees demonstrated several criteria of service excellence, including strong leadership, problem-solving skills, continuous improvement and reliability.
"It's an honor to be recognized by our customers for our efforts to deliver out-of-the-box solutions that have helped them succeed," said Averitt president and chief operating officer Wayne Spain. "On a daily basis, we strive to build great partnerships based on trust and communication. Through these partnerships, we always find innovative and creative ways to overcome supply chain challenges."
Sharing core values, such as focusing on sustainability and building a positive corporate culture, were also an important nomination factor for many of the voters.
