    I have applied with both, looking to go back over the road flatbed. I started out over the road flatbed 15 years ago with Overnight Transportation, been driving local since. I'm not sure which one would be the better choice.

    Didn't Overnight Flatbed rebrand as UPS Flatbed? I see ads for UPS flatbed needing drivers.

    I'm three years in with Melton and they've been great overall. Occasional frustrations but you'll get that anywhere. I don't know much about Maverick other than they probably have more regional options available.
     
    D.Tibbitt and RoadHungryTrucker Thank this.

    Melton is heads, Maverick is tails....flip a coin. I've talked to drivers that love them and I've talked to drivers that hate them. The only difference I dont think Maverick travels the whole country like Melton does. Dont quote me on that though. Double check

    Wasn't it Melton that would let you spec out your own truck after so long?

    You could get a 13spd instead of a 10 or an "automatic" sleeper and wheelbase size?

    One of those places did that, but I can't remember who it was. I'm thinking it was Melton, not so sure about System or Combined transport. Sure it wasn't COTC.
