Maverick Transportation deals out another pay raise, new guarantee pay

Maverick Transportation LLC has announced 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 Temperature Control, Flatbed and Glass OTR (over-the-road) divisions.

John Culp, president of Maverick, said, “Maverick is excited to announce another significant pay increase for our over-the road drivers. 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 August 19, 2018, will add $0.05 per mile for flatbed regional drivers and $0.03 per mile for flatbed over-the-road drivers. This will bring starting pay to $0.54 to $0.58 per mile and student starting pay to $0.52 per mile. Along with the pay increase, Maverick also announced a $1,000 per week guarantee pay that now applies to Temperature Control, Flatbed and Glass OTR divisions. Both the increase and the weekly guarantee pay are scheduled to go into effect August 19.
