Since its inception, Knight has been a company focused on safe, sensible growth, built on financial strength and a commitment to working together with customers to achieve mutual goals.
Our attentive management style emphasizes efficiency; and we always strive to simplify operations, reduce costs, increase safety and keep our trucks and trailers operating at high efficiency. We handle every load as if it was our own, and are constantly finding new ways to better serve our customers.
Knight Transportation exemplifies one of the most remarkable success stories in the truckload industry. Revenues have grown from over $13 million in 1991 to over $850 million in 2011, with operating ratios in the mid to low 80%'s year after year.
Starting with just a handful of trucks and one Service Center in Phoenix, Arizona, we now run a fleet of over 4,000 tractors and more than 8,800 trailers from our nationwide service center network.
We have grown from a few associates to nearly 5,000, and from a family-owned business to a publicly recognized company trading on the New York Stock Exchange (KNX). Forbes Magazine has named us to its list of Top 200 Best Small Companies 15 years in a row.
