Special activities will include giveaways and other events during the week, as well as meals (provided using social-distancing guidelines). In addition, there will be daily prize drawings for CB radios, wireless headsets, GPS units, gift cards, televisions, tables, iPads and more.

As an added bonus, a drawing will reward five of Averitt’s over-the-road drivers with a grand prize — the assignment of a brand-new Freightliner truck.

“This year has presented very unique challenges, and I’m incredibly proud of how our team has reacted, adapted and persevered,” said Gary Sasser, chairman and CEO of Averitt Express. “Because of the efforts of our entire team, we’re well-positioned for success, and Driver Appreciation Week is a great opportunity to reaffirm how thankful we are for our associates.”

Company-sponsored events during National Truck Driver Appreciation week are only a small part of how Averitt Express shows appreciation for its associates throughout the year, Sasser said.

“It’s our commitment to what we call our ‘Winner’s Circle,’ our philosophy of taking care of our customers and our associates and focusing on the future,” he noted.

“That gives us the opportunity to invest in new equipment and facilities, and most of all, to invest in our people with benefits, compensation and profit sharing,” he continued. “That’s something we’re very proud of. The sky’s the limit on what we can accomplish for our customers, our associates and our future.”
