Maverick Transportation LLC, an Arkansas-based carrier, announced a pay increase effective October 2, 2016, for over-the-road drivers in its Temperature Control Division (TCD).
Named one of The National Transportation Institute’s Top Pay Carriers in 2015, Maverick has added this increase to its compensation package and driver support.

That’s a significant increase for TCD drivers—and we’re glad to do it because we appreciate all they do.”
Student drivers will continue to earn $0.40 per mile, experienced drivers will have a new rate of $0.46 to $0.50 per mile. In addition, drivers can earn up to $.06 per mile pay for performance bonus.
Maverick drivers also earn pay increases up to five years, pay for performance bonus, and participate in a driver referral bonus program.
