Averitt Express, Cookeville, TN, has purchased 750 Volvo 660s and 750 Volvo VNM daycabs to be delivered over three years starting this month.

The deal continues a relationship between Averitt, Volvo Trucks North America and Nacarato Volvo & GMC of Nashville that has developed over two decades.
Currently 80% of the carrier's 2,800 tractors are Volvo models. Steve Maxson, Averitt's maintenance vice president, says it's a three-way partnership based on trust and "a thorough understanding of what each brings to the table."
