Aug 28, 2014

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – For the third straight year, Averitt Express has been named a Carrier Recognition Award-winner by Chevron Lubricants. Chevron recognized Averitt for the full-service transportation provider’s dedication to customer service.

The Carrier Recognition Awards are issued to Chevron’s carrier partners that help elevate the perception of Chevron and its lubricant brands through a combination of safety, service and performance. Averitt was highlighted for its service, achieving “on-time” ratings of 90% or better for pickup and delivery of goods, with strong survey results from the locations it served.

“Exceeding our customers’ expectations is our team’s goal every day,” said Gary Sasser, Averitt’s president and CEO. “We’re proud of our associates and their commitment to service excellence, and we’re honored to be recognized by great customers like Chevron for these efforts.”

The Chevron Lubricants 2013 Carrier Recognition Award is one of several honors Averitt has received this year, garnering Walmart’s 2013 Regional LTL Carrier of the Year title and a 2013 Alliance Award from World Trade 100/SMC3.
