In August 2012, Crete Carrier, officially welcomed five very special trucks into its newly launched Patriot Fleet. The black International ProStar tractors differ from the other 6,000 company trucks in a significant way: they are proudly decorated with decals that honor the United States Armed Forces.
The Patriot Fleet trucks represent all of the veterans that have served and sacrificed for our freedoms, past and present. Crete Carrier is honored to have added the Patriot Fleet trucks to the fleet and proudly represent America’s heroes. Each year Crete Carrier will add new Patriot Fleet trucks to the fleet.
Crete Carrier is proud to hire veterans. As military friendly employers, veterans make up nearly 30% of our employee population. We salute all the men and women who have protected our country, and welcome them to transition to an office, shop, or driving career within our family of companies.
