Named nation’s top warehousing and distribution services provider
COOKEVILLE – Readers of Logistics Management magazine have recognized Averitt Express as a top transportation and logistics services provider in the publication’s 36th Annual Quest for Quality Awards.
Averitt took the top honors in the category of Value Added Warehousing and Distribution Solutions. Additionally, the company was recognized for service in the categories of South/South Central Regional Less-Than-Truckload, Expedited and Truckload Dry Freight.
More than 4,500 shippers participated in the publication’s annual survey, which gauges customer satisfaction across several transportation and logistics service categories.
Averitt officially launched its Distribution and Fulfillment Solutions offering in January 2019. Since then, the service has expanded to include more than 20 locations totaling over 1 million square feet of freight and inventory staging space. The service offers shippers access to customized warehousing, delivery and end-to-end supply chain solutions.
“We are honored to be recognized by the shipping community once again for our continued dedication to providing innovative solutions,” said Averitt president and chief operating officer Wayne Spain. “From our drivers to our distribution center and customer service associates, our team is dedicated to ensuring that our customers’ supply chains thrive in today’s ever-evolving business environment.”
Since the Quest for Quality Awards program began in 1984, no other carrier in the South has earned more honors than Averitt.
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.
