Averitt rolls out climate controlled feature for LTL shipments

COOKEVILLE — Averitt Express is now offering climate controlled solutions to the Cookeville area in self-contained, self-powered LTL (less-than-truckload) shipping units. These units provide flexibility since they can be combined with dry cargo and other climate controlled units.

“We asked our customers and they are very interested in climate controlled services, especially in the LTL environment,” said Phil Pierce, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Averitt. “We researched the options available in the market and believe partnering with Climate Controlled Containers is our best entry into this market segment. The tracking features are very impressive, customers will be able to use as many or as few containers as they need, and this is a very environmentally responsible way to transport sensitive and even high value cargo.”

“Averitt is the first transportation company to offer this service,” added Ken Broussard, president and founder of Climate Controlled Containers Inc. “We are delighted with this partnership and look forward to helping Averitt customers. The 24/7 tracking allows monitoring of everything from temperature and humidity to entry and function alarms. Customers can track their shipments live on the web via any device and can even watch their shipments via live video.”
