LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Maverick Transportation is initiating its fourth pay increase this year along with a new weekly guarantee pay.
This new raise in pay is for its drivers in regional and over-the-road flatbed divisions.
The weekly minimum guarantee pay applies to all flatbed, glass and temperature control over the road divisions.
“Maverick is excited to announce another significant pay increase for our over the road drivers.” said John Culp, president of Maverick Transportation. “Our drivers are the backbone of our company and we are proud to offer them this industry leading pay package”
The new pay increase, which goes into effect Sunday, will add $.05 per mile for flatbed regional drivers and $.03 per mile for flatbed over-the-road drivers, bringing the starting pay to $.54-$.58 per mile and student starting pay to $.52 per mile.
Along with the pay increase, Maverick also announced a $1,000 per week guarantee pay which now applies to flatbed, glass and temperature control over the road divisions. Both the increase and the weekly guarantee pay are also scheduled to go into effect Sunday.
Maverick Transportation recently received the prestigious recognition of being named as a Top Pay Carrier for 2018 by The National Transportation Institute (NTI).
“Maverick has a strong reputation in the trucking industry for consistently offering one of the best compensation packages around,” Culp said.
The Arkansas-based carrier rolled out a new pay for experience plan and student pay increase in June, temperature control division pay increase in April and glass and flatbed division increase last December. Maverick also announced per-diem pay and new sign-on bonuses in recent months.
In addition, Maverick drivers also earn pay increases up to five years and up to a 6 cent per mile pay for performance bonus.
