Our safety record is no accident.
Safety for our truck drivers and customer goods is our priority. While Crete Carrier, Shaffer Trucking, and Hunt Transportation are all industry leaders in terms of driver safety, we’re constantly challenging ourselves to make things even safer. That’s why we’ve developed a comprehensive approach to safety that includes:
- Hiring quality drivers
- Leveraging new safety technologies
Going above and beyond industry best practices for the security of our drivers, customers, and members of the traveling public
And while meeting deadlines is important, we always place the safety of our drivers—and the condition of your freight—first and foremost. We are fully implemented with electronic logs to comply with the FMCSA hours of service regulations and provide sleep apnea testing through board-certified physicians at sleep labs at our driver centers. This focus on safety has helped us achieve:
- Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) scores that are consistently in the top two among the top 25 truckload carriers
- Multiple safety awards from the American Trucking Association and a stellar Department of Transportation Preventable Accident Rate of 0.25 per million miles
This means your freight will be handled by well qualified and courteous drivers focused on the safe delivery of your shipment.
