Averitt Express Inc.

Averitt Express Inc. has added new locations in Hagerstown, Maryland, and Saint Albans, West Virginia, to meet increasing demand for truckload services in both areas, the company said.

Also, Averitt is seeking regional drivers — solo and team — for both locations and, as an added incentive, there is a $5,000 sign-on bonus for qualified drivers, the Cookeville, Tennessee-based carrier said.

“We’re committed to continuing on our path of growth, and these new locations are important strategic points that will help us do just that,” Elise Leeson, Averitt’s vice president of human resources, said in a statement. “And we’re excited about the opportunities we have to add talented professional drivers to our team as a result of this expansion.”

Averitt has nearly 1,000 associates who have been with it for 20 years or longer, according to the carrier.

Averitt Express ranks No. 31 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest U.S. and Canadian for-hire carriers.
