About Averitt

We're going somewhere!

Working at Averitt isn't about punching the clock. It's about working with people who trust you, serving people who depend on you, and getting home to people who love you. It's about investing in something big – for you, your family, and Averitt.

That's been our attitude since we started in 1971, and it's why our
 – more... culture feels truly different than anywhere else in the industry. You can ask any one of our many associates in 21 states all about it. Because at the end of the day, we know our driving force is people.

The Averitt story:

In 1958, Thurman Averitt founded Livingston Merchant's Co-op, a small trucking company that hauled dry goods mostly between Nashville, TN and Livingston, TN. In 1969, Thurman incorporated his small company and called it Averitt Express.

While making regular deliveries in Nashville, Thurman became acquainted with a young dockworker who helped him unload his trailer. This young man's name was Gary Sasser. Gary happened to ask Thurman one day if he would be interested in selling his company. After some thought, Thurman said yes.

In October of 1971, Gary Sasser, at the age of 21, purchased Averitt Express, which at the time consisted of two associates, three tractors and five trailers.

Today, Averitt is one of the nation's leading freight transportation and supply chain management providers.
