Averitt is proud to be a founding member of SmartWay®
This program was created in 2004 by the Environmental Protection Agency to reduce transportation-related emissions and improve supply chain efficiency. As one of only 52 charter members, we agreed to meet specific environmental and energy-saving goals while sharing our progress annually with the EPA. Through this program, we established a systematic approach to both reduce emissions and conserve fuel.
As a result, we've earned a SmartWay score of 1.25, which represents "Outstanding Environmental Performance," according to the EPA.View Averitt's SmartWay certification

But in a larger sense, it's a commitment to future generations - individuals we'll never meet, but who'll hopefully enjoy a cleaner earth in part because of our efforts.
It's for you - and them - that we pledge our best and ongoing efforts at protecting the health of our precious planet.
