Averitt Careers and Employment

About us
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
 – more... 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.

Great company to work for
Written by Heavy Truck Logistical Operator (Former Employee) from Cookeville, TN on April 23, 2020
I enjoyed working for this company. Great workplace culture. Driving for this company was a great experience. The management team cares about its drivers. I would have stayed with this company but I needed more home time.
