About Us

Crete Carrier has grown to one of the nation’s largest, privately held trucking companies in 50 years. Along with its sister company (Shaffer Trucking) and subsidiary (Hunt Transportation) Crete Carrier Corporation operates as a truckload and flatbed carrier of any commodity. We, as a company, are dedicated to our drivers. We have one of the lowest driver turnover rates in the industry. Drivers stay with us three times longer than they stay with our competition. Our professional drivers are among the best on all the highways, meeting standards far exceeding those required by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

At Crete Carrier, we know being an industry leader in driver pay is just the beginning. Our Leading Pay Plus program includes extras that boost drivers’ take-home pay now while providing more for retirement later. Our goal is to create opportunities for drivers who want choices in their driving job. We want to support drivers and help them succeed. See what Leading Pay Plus could mean for you.

Crete Carrier raised driver pay five times in the last year for our national and regional over-the-road drivers. That is nearly a 27% pay raise for those drivers—and miles are up significantly. Crete needs even more safe, experienced drivers to meet the needs of our customers.

These drivers are paid based on practical miles; they are paid for 3-5 percent more total miles per year than companies that pay based on short route miles.

The most productive 50 percent of OTR drivers at Crete average more than $103,904 yearly. That divides out to over $1,998 per week, with total compensation at $0.78 per mile! We also offer comprehensive and affordable health insurance, matching 401k, and a profit-sharing plan that contributed $16 million to employee retirement accounts in 2021.
