In 1958, Thurman Averitt founded a small trucking company he named Livingston Merchant’s Co-op that hauled dry goods mostly between Nashville, TN, and Livingston, TN. In 1969, Thurman incorporated his small company and called it Averitt Express.
While making regular deliveries in Nashville, Thurman became acquainted with Gary Sasser, a young dockworker who helped him unload his trailer.
In October of 1971, Gary Sasser, at the age of 21, purchased Averitt Express, which consisted of two associates, three tractors, and five trailers.
Today, Averitt Express is one of the nation’s leading freight transportation and supply chain management providers.
