COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 7, 2011) — Averitt Express was recently honored with the 2010 LTL Carrier of the Year Award by Parker Hannifin, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based manufacturer of motion and control technologies.
Parker Hannifin recognized Averitt based on several critical success factors. The full-service transportation provider met or exceeded Parker Hannifin’s goal of 97-98 percent on-time performance while handling an average of 1,800 shipments per month across its network, from Texas to Florida to Kentucky.
“Parker Hannifin and Averitt have had a strong relationship for many years,” said Reed Tepper, manager of North American logistics and transportation for Parker Hannifin. “Averitt ranked highest among all our LTL carriers in contributing positively to on-time performance, claims, continuous improvement and customer satisfaction.
