    What is Shaffers idle policy? Do all or any of their trucks have APU installed in them?

    Driver Comfort and Safety
    When we purchase new trucks, decisions are made with the driver’s safety and well being in mind. We also utilize the latest safety and performance technology. From the increased storage to the insulation packages, your safety and comfort is what's important to us.
    Tractors have come a long way from cab-over trucks without air ride seats or power steering. The trucks Crete Carrier Corporation offers, have many of the driver comfort items you deserve. These trucks are designed to allow you to work a full day as well as get a full nights rest. With the addition of Idle Reduction Technology, your sleep is not interrupted from the starting and stopping of the truck engine or the noise an engine makes when running. Combine the Idle Reduction Technology with our insulation packages, and our drivers can enjoy a comfortable and quiet rest break.
    Idle Reduction Technology
    Since introducing idle reduction technology into our fleet many years ago we have integrated new technology on a regular basis. We currently have 75% of our fleet equipped with an APU, and plan to increase this number with new tractor purchases. The current models we operate are TriPak, ComfortPro, Espar, Nite, MaxPower and Parksmart.
