This morning, we announced an agreement under which U.S. Xpress and TOTAL Transportation will be acquired by Knight-Swift Transportation. You can read more about the announcement here.
Knight-Swift has a long history of retaining the separate brands and operations of the companies in its group – Knight Transportation, Swift Transportation, Barr-Nunn, Abilene, AAA Cooper, and others all continue to serve our industry and maintain their historical locations. This is just one reason I am convinced that joining the Knight-Swift team is an exciting opportunity for our people, our customers, and the communities we call home.
I want to highlight a few key points:
- It will be business as usual for you and our customers.
- TOTAL will continue to operate as a separate brand from its locations.
- You will keep your driver manager, shop locations, and pay package.
As for next steps, this announcement is just the beginning of the process. We expect to complete the transaction late in the second quarter or early third quarter of 2023. I have attached an FAQ that we hope will help address any immediate questions you may have.
Thank you for your continued hard work. I hope you share my excitement about what’s ahead for TOTAL.
