The Glass Division

It’s been a while since my last post as I have been making the transition from the flatbed division to the glass division at Maverick Transportation. The first step was returning to the training facility in North Little Rock, Arkansas for 4 days of comprehensive hands on training. During those 4 days we covered everything from securement and tarping to Canadian border crossing.
As you can well imagine the glass division and hauling glass in general are very different from flatbed. Glass requires a bit more finesse to transport safely and damage free. Strap and dunnage placement are critical to keep glass from shifting and breaking in transit. As a part of Maverick's Glass Division, I am now part of the largest and most reputable glass carrier in the industry. No doubt it takes some getting used to but I have become more comfortable with each load.

When I travel travel through Alabama on I-22 and need a place to stop for the night or just get something to eat I take exit 30 to Cafe 30. Great food with reasonable prices and a friendly staff! While most of the truck parking lot is rock and gravel, it's also large enough to provide plenty of parking. Located at I-22 Exit 30 or 7016 State Highway 129 Winfield, Alabama
