Shaffer Trucking has a proud history of serving the nation's largest food and temperature-sensitive shippers. Founded in 1937, Shaffer's roots run deep in the central Pennsylvania area of New Kingstown, outside of Harrisburg.
Since joining the Crete organization in 1974, Shaffer has continued to build on its reputation as one of the nation's premier providers of temperature-sensitive truckload services. In 2003, Sunflower Carriers, another Crete Carrier Company, was merged with Shaffer creating one of the largest refrigerated transportation fleets in the country.

In 2012, Shaffer Trucking and Crete Carrier founded the Patriot Fleet, a specialized fleet of trucks that aim to honor all those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. At its inception, the Patriot Fleet was comprised of five trucks. Today, we continued to honor America’s heroes by adding five additional trucks, allowing for one of the largest military fleets in the trucking industry. The Patriot Fleet trucks are black International ProStars and Freightliner Cascadias that feature many emblems including: seals for each branch of the United States Armed Forces, dog tags, a silhouette of a soldier in battle gear, a bald eagle, and the Patriot Fleet shield. Collectively, these drivers bring with them over 133 years of experience in the armed forces, more than 100 years as a part of the Shaffer family, and over 21 million total miles driven.
