It’s part of the American fabric. Good people getting a job done. Customers facing deadlines. Drivers delivering safely and on time. And the team behind the scenes connecting the dots. We do it every day. Together.


At Crete Carrier and Shaffer Trucking we know being an industry leader in driver pay is just the start. Our Leading Pay Plus program includes extras that boost drivers’ take-home pay now—and provide more for retirement later. It’s about creating opportunities for drivers who want choices in driving jobs. And it’s a way of supporting drivers to help them succeed. See what Leading Pay Plus could mean for you.



Crete Carrier Corporation began as a family-owned company in Crete, Nebraska more than 50 years ago. We started with one customer and a commitment to be the best trucking company in the nation. We still haul freight for that customer, and quite a few more of America’s best-known companies. Today the people of Crete Carrier, Shaffer Trucking and Hunt Transportation serve our customers and our country every day, keeping in mind that commitment to deliver every load safely and on time.

Our headquarters is in Lincoln, Nebraska, but we serve customers throughout the lower 48 states and operate 20 terminals to serve our drivers throughout the country.
