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.

“We’re 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.”
