We are Knight.

A Rich History

Since its inception, Knight has focused on safe, sensible growth, built on financial strength and a commitment to working together with customers to achieve mutual goals. We have grown from a few associates to over 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.

Part of our Knight’s success is reflected in the business units we have formed to better meet our customer’s needs. Knight Supply Chain Solutions (SCS) is the latest in a long history of initiatives that serve to put customer satisfaction at the forefront of our actions. Knight SCS combines people, processes, and technology to deliver asset-backed shipping logistics solutions.

Honest

From our price quotes to our transparency in reporting, we honor our word and our actions are a clear reflection of our commitments. In dealing with teammates, we strive for personal accountability while we work together to maintain a harmonious office environment.

Respectful

We treat every client like they’re our only client, and we offer that same respect to each other as coworkers. We value each team members’ input, and we discuss our disagreements with civility and mutual respect, understanding that each member of our team adds value.

Passionate

We love what we do, and we take pride in being experts in our industry. We use good judgement in gathering resources to get things done, and we value self-starters who love what they do and who strive for excellence.

Creative

We’re dedicated to finding the best solution possible, every time, even if that means we need to be inventive. Our team leaders welcome new ideas by approaching problems asking “what if…”, which leads to the the innovation and efficiency that sets us apart.

Strong Communicators

We dedicate ourselves to building strong client relationships and workplace camaraderie through open communication. We value straightforward dialogue that drives solutions, not contention. We don’t shy away from debate, but we do remain true to our values of honesty and respect in all of our discussions.
