COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – As part of its commitment to its associates and to show appreciation for its driving force, Averitt is celebrating National Driver Appreciation Week (Sept. 11-17) with events throughout its network.

This year’s highlights include giveaways, grab-and-go meals and other events at Averitt’s facilities. There are also daily prize drawings for wireless headsets, Apple Air Pods, gift certificates, televisions, GPS systems, iPads and more.

For the grand prize, five over-the-road drivers will have their names drawn to be assigned a brand-new Freightliner truck.
