About Us

Founded in 1966, Crete Carrier Corporation has become one of the largest privately owned trucking companies in the country and offers a full range of transportation services. With help from two sister companies, Shaffer Trucking and Hunt Transportation, Crete Carrier Corporation is able to provide dry van trucking, temperature-sensitive services, and flatbed transportation, respectively. Collectively, the company operates over 5,400 power units and more than 13,000 trailers, serving customers throughout the continental United States.

For 50 years, Crete has operated as a truckload carrier for countless products. Crete drivers are among the best, exceeding standards required by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Furthermore, the National Transportation Institute recognized Crete Carrier, Shaffer Trucking, and Hunt Transportation as Top Pay Certified Carriers. In order to be honored with this classification, a carrier must qualify in three critical categories: top tier pay, benefits, and carrier stability, criteria that ensure professional driving is a rewarding and secure career choice. Aside from being Top Pay Certified, Crete offers a Gold Standard benefits package that includes health, life, dental, vision, 401(k), and a profit sharing program—which contributed $10 million in 2015—ensures that when the company does well, so do drivers.

In 2012, Crete Carrier founded the Patriot Fleet, a specialized fleet of trucks that aim to honor those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. The Patriot Fleet originally debuted with five trucks, but Crete continues to honor America’s heroes with five more trucks added in 2013. The drivers collectively represent over 133 years of experience in the armed forces, more than 100 years with Crete Carrier, and over 21 million total miles driven with Crete.

Crete Carrier exercises mutual respect with drivers by providing updated equipment—an average age of two years—and dedicated dispatchers. Crete also demonstrates driver appreciation through driver referral bonuses, monthly and annual driving awards, and an entire month of recognition with giveaways and free weekly meals. Crete is a family company that strives to build meaningful relationships with drivers.

Even in today’s uncertain economy, Crete Carrier continues to prove itself as a credible employer. Crete remains a debt-free company, meaning paychecks will always be good, and drivers stay with Crete three times longer than the competition. The company offers drivers National, Regional, and Home Weekly options. As always, at Crete Carrier, there are no shortcuts.
