    Still loving the glass division of Maverick. With the up coming pay raise and performance pay 2018 should be a really good year.

    I hauled glass for Maverick for about 4 years, and I am ready to run back. Hell, I'd even be happy to see those soandso's at Carlisle again. I never should have left.

    What areas does glass tend to stay in? I know it's otr but are there any areas you frequent?

    Not really. There are glass manufacturing facilities in Oregon, California, Texas, Kansas, Iowa, New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Illinois, Ohio, and Michigan, though I may be forgetting one or two. It really depends on where you live and how long you plan to stay out.

    Gotcha. Sounds like a good variety at least. There's nowhere I'm really unwilling to go, just don't want to be in places like Chicago & NYC constantly.

    For me personally I stay out 4 weeks at a time. This opens up more opportunities for lengthy runs that will put more money in my pockets.

    Tarping a coil with a glass tarp is definitely a challenge.

    Good job buddy! What size are those glass tarps? Don't you guys carry any steel tarps?

    Thanks. Honestly off the top of my head I cant remember the exact size of those tarps but they have a door on both ends similar to lumber tarps. To get them to work for a coil its necessary to have the doors covering the side of the coil. As a glass hauler I don't carry steel tarps.

    Made a move from over the road to a dedicated gig hauling glass for Vitro Glass. Primarily I will be loading out of Wichita Falls, Texas and Carlisle, PA. All loads will still cover the lower 48 and Canada.
