At Crete Carrier Corporation, we’ve always believed the brave men and women who serve in our military represent the very best of our society. In fact, 30 percent of our workforce is made up of veterans and military personnel. We are proud to provide on the job training to veterans and other eligible persons. To honor our brave veterans we have a Patriot Fleet that includes 20 honorary trucks. These trucks are decorated with decals that salute the United States Armed Forces along with customized dog tags listing our drivers’ military branches, years served, and miles with Crete, Shaffer, or Hunt.
Crete Carrier Corporation respects and appreciates the commitment of our Armed forces, which is one reason why we offer a no-cost rider policy and canine friends to enjoy the ride. We are committed to providing our drivers with industry leading pay, guaranteed detention pay, Gold Standard Driver Benefits including dental, vision, life, health provided through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska, 401(k), profit-sharing, and paid personal time off. Plus, we have a variety of fleet options available, so drivers can choose the home time that works best for them. Our truck drivers are the backbone of our business, and we do all we can to shower them with appreciation
Crete and Shaffer were awarded as a national leader in supporting current and former members of the military. Our Corporation is honored to have received the American Legion Employer of Veterans Award for the Large Business category. We are humbled to be recognized in such a positive way by the Nebraska Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) with the Pro Patria Award.
Here at Crete, we understand the importance of having equipment that is efficient and durable that allows you to have the peace of mind that your freight will arrive at its destination on time. The average age of our trucks is two years or less to ensure nothing gets in your way of delivery. Our newest trucks are loaded with modern-day amenities that keep our drivers comfortable and happy. Also, our network of driver centers located across the country ensures that our equipment is well maintained, keeping our drivers rolling. Crete is proud to hire our country’s veterans by providing them opportunities to transition back to civilian life.
