About Shaffer Trucking

Founded in 1937, Shaffer Trucking has a long history of excellence. Joining the Crete Carrier family in 1974, the two companies along with Hunt Transportation have become one of the nation’s largest privately held transportation companies.

Our professional drivers are among the best on the highways, meeting standards far exceeding those required by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
