Maverick Transportation is raising driver pay in its flatbed and glass over-the-road divisions by 5 cents per mile. The pay increase is applicable to all drivers in both divisions for the Arkansas-based fleet, including student drivers.

The increase will bring base pay for OTR flatbed drivers to 51-56 cents per mile and regional OTR flatbed drivers to 49-54 cents per mile. Glass division drivers will now make 55-60 cents per mile. Students will start at 43-50 cents per mile base pay, depending on division. The pay increase will go into effect Dec. 18.

Many of Maverick’s dedicated divisions will also receive pay increases. This is the second pay increase for Maverick Transportation in recent months. The carrier rolled out a 4-cent-per-mile pay increase for its temperature-controlled division at the end of last year.

“At Maverick Transportation, we pride ourselves on setting the industry standard when it comes to driver compensation,” said John Culp, president of Maverick Transportation. “We are constantly looking for ways we can put more money in our drivers’ pockets.”

Maverick offers its drivers increases up to five years, a pay for performance bonus, and a driver referral bonus program. Other driver benefits include home time, weekend guarantee pay, paid orientation and training, paid weigh station bypass and tolls, 401k plan + match, company-paid life insurance, health and dental insurance options, and paid vacation. Additionally, Maverick is currently offering a $5,000 sign-on bonus for drivers with one year of verifiable experience.
