This is the 13th year the transportation and supply chain solutions provider has received the honor
This marks the 13th year that the transportation and supply chain solutions provider has received the honor since the magazine started its recognition program in 2009. The publication’s annual “G75” list recognizes 75 logistics and transportation companies that have gone above and beyond to prioritize green initiatives to reduce the impact of their operations and that of their customers, on the environment.
“Receiving this distinction for our sustainability efforts is an honor,” said Barry Blakely, Averitt’s president and chief operating officer. “Improving the environmental efficiency of our operations and minimizing the impact of our customers’ supply chains is critically important to our organization.”
Averitt uses a wide variety of eco-focused technology within its fleet and facilities, promotes environmental efficiency and recycling best practices with its associates and strives for smarter fuel and energy use to help reduce its carbon footprint.
Equipped with one of the most modern fleets in North America, Averitt achieved significant improvements within its transportation operations in 2022, including:
- Eliminating 8,134 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by improving trailer aerodynamics
- Reducing CO2 emissions by 679,550 pounds with the adoption of electric forklifts at several locations
- Saving 9,285,100 pages of paper by streamlining or eliminating paperwork involved in LTL shipments
