Shaffer Trucking is part of the Crete Carrier family of companies. These include the Crete Carrier van division, the Shaffer Trucking refrigerated division, and the Hunt Transportation flatbed division. All three companies operate as a truckload carrier of virtually any commodity and extends service to all those having a need for efficient service. Our focus has been to be a low-cost provider of quality transportation and logistic services; to maximize the utilization of our assets; to listen our customers, and deliver more than you expect.
From our corporate headquarters and central dispatch located in Lincoln, NE, we supervise an extensive fleet of modern equipment operated by experienced drivers serving shippers and receivers throughout the country. Our professional drivers are among the best on the highways, meeting standards far exceeding those required by the U.S. Department of Transportation. As a result, we have one of the lowest driver turnover ratios in our industry.
Customer service and dispatch personnel are on call 24 hours a day, coordinating loads and monitoring them en route. The close communications of our Operations Department with our customers and drivers is one of the key factors in achieving consistent on time performance. Crete also prides itself on its responsive service, which has produced profitable operations in every year of its existence. This expeditious service is coupled with a safety record that evidences concern, not only for the cargo for which we are responsible, but also the public with whom we share the highways.
