COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – As part of its continuing efforts to show appreciation for its driving force, Averitt Express is celebrating Driver Appreciation Week (Sept. 10-16) with events throughout its network.

This year’s events include cookouts, prize drawings and other festivities at Averitt’s facilities. There are also daily prize drawings for prizes such as Amazon Fire TV sticks, Apple AirPods, an iPad, a Samsung 55-inch Smart TV and more.

As has become Averitt’s tradition for several years, five over-the-road drivers will have their names drawn as the grand-prize winners of a brand-new Freightliner truck assignment.

“Our driving force is a key reason we have enjoyed success for more than 50 years,” said Gary Sasser, Averitt’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The transportation industry has faced challenges and instability this year. Through it all, the professionalism and commitment of our associates has continued to shine and put us in position to share a bright future together.”

As another way to celebrate Driver Appreciation Week, Averitt produced a special video honoring its associates. To watch the video, visit or click below.

TTA Presents Safety Awards To Averitt Express

By Craig Delk on Oct 18, 2022 2:05:52 PM

The Tennessee Trucking Association recently honored Averitt Express for its commitment to safety.

Averitt earned the TTA’s 2022 Grand Champion Trophy, as well as first-place accolades for truckload and LTL safety.

The safety awards recognize an organization’s safe-driving record. The TTA measures a carrier’s performance by the number of accidents within a specific mileage category. Averitt’s LTL fleet was honored in the 15,000,001-plus miles category, while its truckload fleet was the winner in the 7,000,001-plus miles category.

The Grand Champion designation is determined by the overall best accident frequency rate of all carriers in Tennessee who entered in the 3,000,001-plus miles category. Averitt’s recognition marked the first time it has earned the Grand Champion award.

Were very proud of our commitment to doing things the right way, and we’re humbled by this recognition from the TTA” said Averitt President Wayne Spain. “These awards are the result of a team effort, and we’re thankful for the efforts of our associates to make it possible.”

Averitt demonstrates its commitment to highway safety in a variety of ways, including:
