Award marks the fourth consecutive year Averitt

Cookeville – Averitt Express was recently recognized by the Women In Trucking association, as it was chosen as one of WIT’s “Top Companies For Women To Work For In Transportation.” 

The award marks the fourth consecutive year Averitt has been selected for the list. 

According to WIT, to be eligible for the award, companies must have “cultures that foster gender diversity, competitive compensation and benefits, flexible hours and work requirements, professional development opportunities and career advancement opportunities.”

“From the dock and driver’s seat to operations, leadership and many other roles, we’re committed to offering women great career opportunities,” said Averitt Vice President of Human Resources Elise Leeson. “This recognition shows that others in the transportation industry continue to see the difference in Averitt.”

Averitt aims to build on WIT’s mission by providing women with a safe, stable, team-oriented culture. Among the many ways it accomplishes this is through state-of-the-art facilities, dynamic safety features on its tractors, and safe parking at more than 100 locations. Averitt also has a Driver Services staff based at its corporate headquarters to help driving associates with any questions they may have, as well as on-site Driver Support Specialists at facilities throughout its network for one-on-one assistance.
