Maverick raises pay for its truck drivers
Maverick Transportation, a glass carrier based in North Little Rock, Arkansas, announced a pay increase for its truck drivers.
Maverick increased driver wages by 2 cents per mile for drivers, as well as a new $ 200 border crossing fee.
“Driver pay increases are a direct result of the job our drivers do every day to be the best in the industry,” said Vice President of Operations John Coppens. “As the largest specialized glass hauling fleet in the U.S., our customers rely on the best in class services we provide. Our latest pay increase for our over the road glass fleet is aimed directly at those driving jobs to meet the unprecedented need for our premier services.”
The company said the increase, effective Jan. 1, allows student drivers to earn up to $ 76,000 in their first year and experienced drivers $ 87,000 in their first year.
Maverick, founded in 1980 with approximately 1,600 units, offers OTR and custom solutions to the specialized transportation markets.
