Averitt Express recently was honored with the 2010 LTL Carrier of the Year Award by Parker Hannifin, a Cincinnati-based manufacturer of motion and control technologies. Parker Hannifin says it recognized Cookeville, Tenn.-based Averitt based on several critical success factors and that the full-service transportation provider met or exceeded its goal of 97-98 percent on-time performance while handling an average of 1,800 shipments per month across its network, from Texas to Florida to Kentucky.
“Parker Hannifin and Averitt have had a strong relationship for many years,” says Reed Tepper, manager of North American logistics and transportation for Parker Hannifin. “Averitt ranked highest among all our LTL carriers in contributing positively to on-time performance, claims, continuous improvement and customer satisfaction. Parker expects excellence from our carriers and, in return, awards those carriers with loyalty and opportunity for growth.”
