Crete Carrier | Truck Driving Jobs

Trucking Company Overview:

Founded more than 50 years ago, Crete Carrier has grown to one of the nation’s largest, privately held trucking companies. Along with sister company, Shaffer Trucking, and wholly-owned subsidiary, Hunt Transportation, Crete Carrier Corporation operates as a truckload and flatbed carrier of virtually any commodity. At Crete Carrier, we are dedicated to our drivers. As a result, we have one of the lowest driver turnover rates in the industry; with drivers staying with us three times longer than they do our competition. Our professional drivers are among the best on the highways, meeting standards far exceeding those required by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Crete Carrier named to 2019 Best FleetsEach year a list of the Top 20 Best Fleets is produced by CarriersEdge, in partnership with Truckload Carriers Association. The Best Fleets to Drive For® is an annual survey and contest that identifies the for-hire carriers providing the best workplace experiences for their drivers. The competition is open to all for-hire trucking companies operating 10 trucks or more in the United States or Canada. There is no cost to participate, and fleets do not have to be TCA members.

"When it comes to working with drivers, our Top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For are North America's best-of-the best in the for-hire trucking segment," said CarriersEdge Chief Executive Officer Jane Jazrawy. "This recognition program is now in its 11th year, and each year we've seen fleets up their game - making a positive difference in the lives of drivers with innovative programs."
