Veterans Day - Thank You!

By Averitt on November, 10 2022

Topics: Drivers

Over a thousand of our current associates - including drivers, members of our executive team, logistics and operations leaders, and administrative professionals - have served or are currently serving in the military. Hiring military personnel is more than a trend for us. It’s a natural fit.

We don't just take pride in our veterans, we take care of them. From equipment to benefits to uniforms, Averitt's culture honors, values, and respects military service.

Our commitment to veterans is why Averitt has been recognized as a Military Friendly Employer and earned the Patriotic Employer Award.


As a part of our ongoing commitment to hire veterans, we are engaged in several initiatives, including:

  • CDL skills waiver assistance for veterans with military driving experience

  • Tuition assistance for CDL driving school for veterans who do not have driving experience

  • Dock-to-driver and driver-to-leadership career paths, encouraging veterans to move up through the ranks to leadership positions

  • Flexible career paths for spouses of veterans and active-duty military, including the ability to transfer between locations and divisions as needed

If you are a veteran, Averitt thanks you for your service!
