Averitt driver wins truck in contest

Averitt Express driver Marty Robbins was randomly selected as the winner of a 2010 Ford F-150 4×4 pickup truck, the grand prize in the carrier’s recent F-150 4×4 Fuel Duel.

In addition, 20 other Averitt associates each won a $500 fuel card in a random drawing.

The unveiling was the culmination of the company’s six-month program to save fuel. Drivers from throughout Averitt’s system were assembled into 142 teams, each tasked with improving fuel efficiency compared to a year earlier.

Among teams that improved their fuel efficiency, Averitt drivers conserved 132,544 gallons of fuel over last year and saved $356,545.
