Knight Transportation opens four new service centers
Phoenix, Ariz.-based motor carrier Knight Transportation said Wednesday it has opened another dry van service center and three more brokerage service centers, including one in Los Angeles.
The new dry van service center, located in Dallas, joins the firm's network of 27 dry van, four refrigerated and 12 brokerage service centers. The three new brokerage service centers are in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Reno, Nev.
The new facilities follow closely on the openings of two brokerage service centers in Indiana and Pennsylvania by the $670 million-a-year firm.
In a release announcing the new openings, Chairman and Chief Executive Kevin Knight said: 'Although we are in a challenging freight environment, we believe our service center expansion continues to be a medium for growth and will continue to position us well for an improved demand environment.'
