    I have been flatbed otr (USA division) with Maverick for over a year now. I can go home every two weeks or stay out longer if I want. I have stayed out for 6 weeks a couple of times and I have never gone to the Rockies or any of the western 11 states. I asked an ALM (customer serivce/ load booker) at the Portage, IN yard about going out west and I was told that I would most likely never go out west. Maverick's main territory is from Minnesota straight down to the Mexican border and all points east of there.

    Never even seen a Maverick truck in the west.

    EDIT: also if you want to do flatbed in the west there are some okay companies if you're interested.

    I’m in Phoenix Arizona right now and saw a maverick flatbed on i10 about 25 miles away from Phoenix if that means anything.

    I would not expect a maverick flatbed that far west. Maybe once in a while.

    Most of my flatbeds are east of Oklahoma city-Houston-chicago etc.thats where most of the Country's mills requiring them are generally at. The west does not have that many steel mills etc.

    But if you can get into Idabel OK, your business would be booming literally.

    There are lots of Maverick glass loads going west. If you've never seen a Maverick truck on I40 between Amarillo and Barstow then you might want to look into getting some glasses.
