Wednesday, Nov 8 2017 Staff Writer
Maverick Transportation LLC, named one of The National Transportation Institute’s Top Pay Carriers last year, has announced a $.05 per mile pay increase for its Flatbed and Glass OTR divisions. This pay increase is applicable to all drivers in both divisions, including student drivers.
“At Maverick Transportation, we pride ourselves on setting the industry standard when it comes to driver compensation,” says John Culp, president of Maverick Transportation. “We are constantly looking for ways we can put more money in our drivers’ pockets.”
The pay increase, which goes into effect December 18, 2017, will bring base pay for OTR flatbed drivers to $.51 - $.56 per mile, and regional OTR flatbed drivers to $.49 - $.54 per mile. Glass division drivers will now make $.55 - $.60 per mile base pay, while students will start between $.43 - $.50 per mile base pay, depending on division. Many of Maverick’s dedicated divisions will also receive pay increases. This is the second pay increase for Maverick Transportation drivers in recent months. The Arkansas-based carrier rolled out a $.04 per mile pay increase for its Temperature Control division at the end of last year.
Maverick drivers enjoy competitive pay with the ability to earn increases up to five years, a pay for performance bonus, and a driver referral bonus program. Other driver benefits include: excellent home time, weekend guarantee pay, paid orientation & training, paid weigh station bypass & tolls, 401k plan + match, company-paid life insurance, health and dental insurance options, and paid vacation.
