I'm looking at primes tanker division , my first company I worked for transland but they haul dry van or flat bed and then maverick glass is probably my top 3. Maybe he's a regional driver ? I know their glass division goes into Canada also

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

There's a few dedicated glass spots yea. The pay is not as much as the otr but still decent.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Do you know what glass division starts out at in cpm?

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

If you look on the Maverick website it says starting pay for glass is 50-55 cpm. It also indicates there will be 5 cpm increase after today 12-17-17 They have many other pay incentives and bonuses as well. It seems to me they have about five different glass trailers they uses but most can be converted to haul regular flatbed loads or step deck as well. From what I have heard from youtube drivers of theirs the glass division gets paid the glass rate even if they are hauling regular flatbed loads like a coil. Their glass division pays higher with the same level of experience.

Sounds like you just need to dig deeper on the site. I will be going to orientation in feb there if I can get my finances together a little better before then. As mentioned in a previous comment the glass division does go to Canada so you will need your passport or passcard or a receipt you applied for one prior to going to orientation. Contacting them and working with a recruiter closely will get you through the process in about a week if you want to go that fast. Not sure if you can request a recruiter but I can tell you Kacie is very good at working with people.

They have a couple of their drivers that post pretty regularly on youtube I think Bukwild, and Craig Ryan currently drive for them.

Craig is in their flatbed division

Oh forgot to mention they will put you through getting your twic card at orientation as well. and take it out of your pay in payments of about 27 dollars and change a payment. It seems to me like a great company to work with at any skill or experience level.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.
