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 Newsal 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.

Clup said other driver benefits include “excellent” 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, paid vacation and a driver referral bonus program.

ACT says trailer order volume soft in second straight month

COLUMBUS, Ind. — ACT Research’s preliminary estimate for April 2019 net trailer orders is 14,500 units.

Final volume will be available later this month. ACT’s methodology allows the company to generate a preliminary estimate of the market that should be within +/- 3% of the final order tally.

“Order volume was soft in April for the second straight month. Several factors appear to be in play. OEMs continue to be reticent to fully open 2020 orderboards. This is evident in our measurement of the extent of the industry’s backlog, which has remained in the November or December timeframe throughout the first four months of 2019,” said Frank Maly, ACT’s director of CV transportation analysis and research. “While we hear comments of some fleets anxiously awaiting the chance to snap up 2020 build slots, some also appear to be evaluating their existing commitments. Cancellations in April were the highest since August 2016 on both a unit and percent of backlog basis, and have remained elevated since December. That resulted in an interesting dichotomy in April orders; while new orders were actually up versus March, cancellations were significant enough to pull the net order number into the red month-over-month.”

Maly said while down slightly from March, production continues at a brisk pace, although material/component availability and staffing continue to challenge OEMs. Seasonal patterns actually called for a slight increase for April production, so that small sequential decline likely confirms the impact of the aforementioned headwinds.

“Additionally, our discussions indicate that red-tagged units continue to challenge OEM production efficiency,” he said.

The panel discussions and the presentations by the carriers participating in the SITE will take place the following day.

The ES Community motor carriers participating in the SITE will be FedEx Custom Critical, Forward Air and Panther Premium Logistics, a service of ArcBest. These three companies will be the exclusive motor carriers at the SITE, and each company will have a representative who will be making a presentation during the expo. Mike Abood, FedEx Custom Critical’s managing director of fleet operations, Nick Burch, Panther’s director of owner-operator recruiting, and Ryan Gilliam, Forward Air’s vice president of recruiting, have been chosen by their respective carriers as speakers for the 2019 SITE.

The attendees also will hear a presentation from Paul Williams and ES President Jason Williams, which will take place prior to the event’s final ride-and-drive session, which will be hosted by 2019 SITE Title Sponsor Stoops Freightliner.

“Over the past several months, we have been working very diligently to develop an event and programming for the Success In Trucking Expo that will be meaningful and have a positive impact for professional drivers interested in ownership as well as current owner-operators and fleet owners who are looking to grow their businesses,” said Jason Williams. “With the group of experts who will be coming to our SITE stage at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway complex, we are confident that everyone joining us for the inaugural edition of the SITE will take away the kind of knowledge and perspective that they will find helpful as they move forward in their trucking careers.”

In addition to participating in the industry panel discussion, Voie will be hosting the June 8 edition of her Women In Trucking Radio Show live and on location from the SITE.
