1974 – Crete Carrier Goes Cool

In 1974, Crete Carrier Corporation acquired Shaffer Trucking, a temperature-sensitive carrier based in New Kingstown, Pennsylvania.

Since joining Crete Carrier Corporation in 1974, Shaffer Trucking has continued to build on its reputation as one of the nation’s premier providers of temp controlled services. The merger with Sunflower Carriers, another Crete Carrier Corporation company, created one of the largest refrigerated transportation fleets in the country.
