Company Profile for Crete Carrier Corporation


Over the past 50 years, Crete Carrier has become one of the nation’s largest, privately owned trucking companies in the industry. Along with sister company, Shaffer Trucking, and wholly-owned subsidiary Hunt Transportation, Crete Carrier Corporation operates as a truckload and flatbed carrier for virtually any commodity. Our drivers are among the best, exceeding the CSA score standards required by the U.S. Department of Transportation. The National Transportation Institute has awarded us as a Top Pay Certified Company for 10 straight years. This is an investment in our most valuable resource, our drivers. 

At Crete Carrier, we take pride in our relationships with our drivers. Our professional drivers are among the best on the highways, meeting standards far exceeding those required by the U.S. Department of Transportation. At Crete Carrier, we are dedicated to our drivers. As a result, we have one of the lowest driver turnover ratios in the industry. Customer service and dispatch personnel are on-call 24 hours a day, coordinating loads and monitoring them en route. The close communications of our Operations Department with our customers and drivers is one of the key factors in achieving consistent, on-time performance. Crete prides itself on its responsive service, which has produced profitable operations every year since we've been in business. This prompt service is coupled with a safety record that shows concern, not only for the cargo for which we are responsible, but also our drivers and the public with whom we share the highways.
