WHY CHOOSE CRETE CARRIER?

Crete Carrier and Shaffer Trucking have raised driver pay five times in the last year for our national and regional over-the-road drivers. That’s nearly a 27 percent pay raise for those drivers—and our miles are up significantly. In fact, we need more safe, experienced drivers to meet the needs of our customers.

Crete, Shaffer, and Hunt drivers are paid based on practical miles. This means drivers are paid for 3-5 percent more total miles per year than companies that pay based on short route miles. Another added incentive is that those practical miles roll in faster now that we’ve recently raised our governed truck speed to 68 MPH on the cruise and 65 MPH on the pedal.

The most productive 50 percent of our Crete Carrier and Shaffer Trucking OTR drivers average more than $103,904 per year. That equates to over $1,998 per week with a total compensation of $0.78 per mile!

The top 50% of our Hunt Transportation drivers average $93,600 per year ($1,800 per week), with starting pay ranging from $0.65 to $0.70 per mile.

We also offer comprehensive and affordable health insurance, matching 401k and a profit-sharing plan that contributed $49.5 million to employee retirement accounts since 2018 alone.
