Averitt Express opens Atlanta distribution center, its first in market

Averitt Express, a less-than-truckload (LTL) and logistics firm, has opened a distribution center in Atlanta. It is the company’s first such facility in the booming metropolis.

The 140,000-square-foot facility, near Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on the city’s southside, will complement two Atlanta-based service centers operated by Averitt to support LTL and truckload distribution, the company said.

Privately held Averitt, based in Cookeville, Tennessee, operates about 1 million square feet of distribution space at more than 20 locations in the Southeast and Midwest.
