Averitt truckload driver Rey C. was delivering in Houston, TX, when he got the call.

“I was very excited, I couldn’t believe it,” he said.

Rey is one of five Averitt drivers who were assigned a brand new 2022 Freightliner Cascadia this year as part of our driver appreciation celebration.

“I was really thankful,” he said. “Basically, truck drivers, we live in the truck. So, a new work truck is a­­wesome.”

At Averitt, driver safety is always our priority, so we made sure our new Freightliners were decked out with additional safety features like lane-departure protection and intelligent high beams that will help us deliver outstanding service and get our drivers home safely. And that’s not the only thing our drivers love about their new trucks.

“It has that new smell,” Averitt driver Rebecca S. said. “I really love it. I really love the fact that I’m driving a new truck.”

Driver Troyshawn D. was in Tennessee when he got the call. He said he likes his new truck’s “peanut butter colored” interior. Driver Crystal A. said her new Freightliner Cascadia purrs like a kitten. “It looks great. There’s no wear and tear,” she said.

“I couldn’t believe it when they told me I had won,” driver Tim J. said. “I am very excited.”

We provide our drivers the best equipment (and other great benefits) because they deserve it!

“I don’t feel like just a number at Averitt,” Troyshawn said. “I really feel like it’s just a big happy family.”
