Crete Carrier Corporation is one of the largest privately owned trucking companies in the country. But our roots are firmly planted in the heartland and we still take a family approach to our employees and customers. Big time capabilities with hometown values. We think that’s the perfect combination.


With three specialized divisions, we can handle just about any kind of load you might have – dry van, refrigerated, and flatbed.

    We Know How To Stay Cool

    Shaffer Trucking’s first job in 1937 was hauling chocolate across the country. Pretty important cargo for a refrigerated carrier to keep cold.

    We must have done okay, because over 80 years later Shaffer Trucking is one of the largest transportation carriers of refrigerated goods in the country. We have more than 1,100 tractors and more than 2,800 refrigerator trailers covering national, regional, and local routes.

    While we specialize in the transportation of goods that are cold, we can also transport tri-temp units that adjust to three different settings—cool, cold, and frozen.
