Maverick Transportion Company Review

Maverick Transportion

Maverick Transportion company logo

After President Jimmy Carter signed the Motor Carrier Act of 1980, deregulating the trucking industry, Maverick Chairman and CEO Steve 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. In 1983, he purchased his partner's interest in the company and became the sole owner of Maverick Transportation, Inc. Today the Williams family still owns 100% of the Maverick companies.

Maverick's growth has come from reinvestment of earnings in company owned equipment and 5 acquisitions: Kissick Truck Lines in 1994, Jewett Scott Truck Line in 2002, Parrett Trucking in 2004, Schneider Specialized in 2006, Crossover Transportation in 2010, and Haywood Trucking in 2014.
