The following is being communicated from Averitt:

Even though most of the severe weather has passed our area, there are continued conditions in some areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama which limit our ability to conduct pickup and delivery services. In the interest of the health and safety of our associates, and also due to closures in several areas, Averitt will have limited operations in some of our locations on Wednesday, Sept 1.


We are not  currently accepting pickups for shipments destined for New Orleans or Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Download a list of zip codes affected by clicking here.

  • New Orleans, LA (closed until further notice)
  • Baton Rouge, LA (open, with very limited service)
  • Jackson, MS (open, with limited service)
  • Mobile, AL (open, with limited service)

We are not accepting expedited shipments to any of the locations listed above at this time. We continue to evaluate conditions in these areas and additional areas throughout our network.
