Touring Maverick Transportation

Maverick Transportation hosted a group of twenty-one UCA students at their headquarters in North Little Rock, AR on March 28, 2017.  Maverick is one of America’s largest trucking companies and has hired more UCA Logistics and Supply Chain students than any other single employer.

Students were guided on the tour by UCA alumni Erik Neville and Callie Heathscott, both of whom work in Maverick’s Human Resources Department.  Students not only toured Maverick’s offices but also sat in a new Freightliner and viewed Maverick’s training center where employees are able to utilize simulators to improve their driving skills.  Following the tour, students heard from Maverick executives John Culp (President), Doug Richey (Executive VP and COO), Kim Williams (VP of Sustainability), and Kevin Williams (VP of Logistics) who discussed the company’s history, culture, and operations.  A question and answer session followed with lively discussion.
