75 Years of Success at Shaffer Trucking and NC Truck Driving Jobs

11th January 2013


Not many trucking companies today can mirror 75 years of existence, but dedication by loyal associates and teammates have allowed refrigerated carrier Shaffer Trucking to reach that milestone. Jack Peetz, President of Shaffer Trucking , says what sets their company apart from other fleets is an ethic of approaching each day andperson with an attitude of respect, honesty and compassion.

“We have found that those we work with and for will in turn treat us the same,” Peetz said. “It’s kind of our Golden Rule. We believe there are no shortcuts to success and that’s a philosophy that drives our business.”

Shaffer’s proud history of serving the nation’s largest food and temperature sensitive shippers started in 1937. The company joined the Crete Carrier organization in 1974 and continued to build on an already solid reputation. Then in 2003 Sunflower Carriers, another Crete company, merged with Shaffer to create one of the largest refrigerated transportation fleets in the country. With 1,400 power units and 2,800 state-of-the-art trailers, the company is proud to be the premier transportation supplier to the candy, confection, and beverage industries, delivering more candy than any other carrier.

Shaffer’s pay program is one of the most outstanding in the trucking industry. They were one of the first companies to pay their driver teammates on the basis of practical route miles versus traditional short route miles and they employ a driver referral program where we existing driver teammates can earn $1,000 to recruit a fellow qualified driver to work for Shaffer and NC Truck Driving Jobs . In the most recent year, driver teammates received more than $400,000 in recruiting bonuses.

Peetz said Shaffer offers exceptional benefits including medical, dental, optical and prescription as well as short-term disability protection and life insurance. Teammates also have the option to purchase additional life insurance for family members. The coverages also have an employee assistance component should it be needed. “We recently added an optional supplemental insurance coverage package for those seeking additional sickness and accident protection and we also offer a profit sharing plan to all full time employee/teammates consisting of a 401(k) component and profit sharing account,” Peetz added. The company makes an annual profit sharing contribution to individual employee/teammates’ account. Shaffer has a program for their owner-operators where they contribute to their individual IRA account.

Less experienced drivers or entry-level truckers who’ve come from approved driver training schools will find a stable of driver trainers to help sharpen your skills. All new driver teammates undergo a 90-day evaluation and refresher discussion with their terminal manager within 90 days of joining the company. “We have found these to be extremely valuable in permitting us to get to know our drivers and respond to issues or questions they have,” Peetz said. “We also have an open door policy where any of our teammates can discuss their ideas, issues and concerns with any management team member.”
