In a poll of close to 5,500 shippers, Averitt was honored in two categories - South/South Central Regional LTL and Truckload Dry Freight. This marks the 19th consecutive year that Averitt has been recognized with at least one Quest for Quality Award. Since the program began in 1984, no other carrier in the South has earned more Quest for Quality awards than Averitt.
“We are honored to be acknowledged by shippers around the country for the ongoing dedication to professional service that our associates uphold every day,” said Averitt president and chief operating officer Wayne Spain. “We look forward to continuing to create and grow thriving partnerships that enable shippers and their businesses to succeed.”
The Quest for Quality Awards poll is one of the most extensive of its type within the transportation and logistics industry. The honors were determined by several criteria, including on-time performance, value, information technology, customer service, and equipment and operations.
