“Our associates’ efforts have simply been incredible,” said Barry Blakely, Averitt’s vice president of operations. “We have seen increased freight levels, and areas of our network continue to face challenges resulting from COVID-19. Through it all, our commitment to teamwork, safety and service have helped us enjoy an outstanding year. We are proud of our culture of showing appreciation for a job well done, and this event is just one of the many ways we are saying thank you to associates for all they do.”
