About Shaffer Trucking


Shaffer Trucking was founded in 1937 in New Kingstown, Pennsylvania. In 1974, Shaffer Trucking joined the Crete Carrier family, becoming one of the nation’s premier providers of temperature-sensitive truckload services. Today, Shaffer is one of the nation's largest refrigerated transportation fleets and is proud to be the leading transportation supplier to the candy, confection, and beverage industries - delivering more candy than any other carrier.

The average Shaffer Trucking Driver earns over $62,000 per year and the top drivers earning above $72,000 per year. It’s no wonder we’ve been in business for 80 years.
