Maverick to add 350 new trucks

Maverick Transportation recently announced it will begin taking delivery on 350 new trucks in the first quarter of 2012.

The new equipment will be 2012 and 2013 Freightliner Cascadias equipped with electronic onboard recorders, auxiliary power units, and the latest in safety technology, including collision avoidance, and roll stability control. Trucks will also contain the latest Daimler engine technology and Eaton electronic shift transmissions.

Among the new trucks, 190 units will be replacements. The remaining 160 units will represent growth as the company expands. Maverick took delivery of 500 new trucks this year.

“Maverick’s latest truck order means the vast majority of our fleet will be 2010 year models or newer,” said Vice President of Maintenance Mike Jeffress.

Based in Little Rock, Ark., Maverick operates more than 1,200 power units.
