Flatbed Division

Drive for the Industry Leader

Chances are you've seen those shiny maroon flatbed trucks traveling down the road with a perfectly tarped load. Want to join us? Do you have what it takes to be a Maverick? We believe it takes a special type of person to be a true Maverick. Pride, hard work, a professional appearance and attitude are just a few of the things that make a Maverick so unique. Maverick made its name in flatbed and we have several opportunities available for drivers that meet our standards of excellence.

Experience is nice but not required. We offer flatbed training. During training, we will teach you the proper securement techniques required of a flatbed driver. Our extended training program is available to those without flatbed experience or to those who might need extra flatbed training.
