Years ago, truck drivers were called “Knights of the Highway” because they were always on hand to help a fellow driver in distress.The first on the scene of a crash, they helped trucking earn a well-deserved reputation for being an upstanding and honorable profession. Over the years, things have changed in the trucking industry. Many drivers are a little less likely to go out of their way to help other drivers. The way that the public perceives the trucking industry is different now. A New Breed Of Knights. Averitt Express drivers are becoming the new Knights of the Highway by shaping the reputation of the trucking industry in a whole new way. They’re doing it by standing out in red uniforms. They’re doing it by winning multiple awards for their service. And most importantly, they’re doing it by helping others when disaster strikes.
When our Texas and Louisiana teammates needed help following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in late August and September, Averitt associates throughout our network stepped up to show what The Power of One is all about.Several of our teammates who were affected by Harvey expressed their gratitude to the rest of the team. Check out this video to hear some of our teammates’ thoughts regarding our Hurricane Harvey response:
