Maverick Transportation Company Overview

Maverick company training

Growing up in the transportation industry and learning the lessons of the trade from his steel-hauling father, Chairman and CEO Steve Williams went into business for himself and formed Maverick Transportation in 1980.

After President Jimmy Carter signed the Motor Carrier Act of 1980, deregulating the trucking industry, Williams seized the opportunity to pursue his dream and started Maverick with friend and co-worker Larry Leahy in a one room office in Texarkana, Arkansas.

Maverick operates approximately 1,500 units coast-to-coast, in Canada and to Mexico providing customized logistics solutions to some of the nation's finest corporations.
