Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings Inc. Announces Robust First Quarter Results for 2024

PHOENIX, April 24, 2024 – Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings Inc. (NYSE: KNX), a leader in North America’s freight transportation sector, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024. Detailed financial results are available on the Knight-Swift investor relations website and have been filed with the SEC on a Form 8-K.

The company reported a challenging yet productive quarter, marked by strategic adjustments and robust operational execution. Despite a softer freight market and lower spot market rates, Knight-Swift demonstrated its resilience by implementing effective business strategies that helped maintain its market-leading position.

Financial Highlights and Operational Performance

The first quarter saw Knight-Swift navigate through market fluctuations with strong discipline and strategic foresight. Key financial outcomes and strategic initiatives included:

  • Third-Party Insurance Wind Down: The quarter marked the cessation of operations for the third-party insurance segment, leading to an operating loss from this sector. However, the company effectively transferred the majority of the claims risk to another insurance entity, mitigating potential future exposures.
  • Earnings Power Across Cycles: The company highlighted its capability to generate industry-leading truckload margins across different market cycles, demonstrating low to mid-twenties margin peaks and managing tougher troughs efficiently.
  • Leadership and Strategic Acquisitions: Leadership transitions and strategic acquisitions have played a pivotal role in navigating current market challenges. Adam Miller, with his extensive background in transportation and finance, has taken over as Chief Executive Officer, bringing a renewed focus on cost management and operational efficiency.

Future Outlook

As Knight-Swift continues to navigate a complex and evolving transportation landscape, the company remains committed to leveraging its scale, network efficiencies, and strategic acquisitions to enhance shareholder value and strengthen its market position.
