Knight Transportation, Inc. Receives Sixth Annual San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan Air Quality Award

Knight Transportation, Inc. (NYSE: KNX) is very proud to have been named the recipient of a Sixth Annual San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan (CAAP) Air Quality Award. This award is presented by the staff of the Port of Long Beach and the Port of Los Angeles, in addition to representatives from the South Coast Air Quality Management district, California Air Resources Board and United States Environmental Protection Agency, Region 9.

Knight Transportation has a company-wide commitment to protect the environment and exceed industry standards. Recognized for having one of the newest and cleanest fleets in the industry, Knight Transportation operates over 4,000 trucks nationwide—of which 330 operate in the LA/ LB port area. Knight’s fleet runs on US EPA 2007 and US EPA 2010 compliant engines, and more than half of the fleet operating in the LA/ LB port area is comprised of 2010 or newer trucks exceeding current port requirements. Engines from the 2010 and newer trucks have reduced CO 2 emissions by approximately 18% and reduced NOx emissions by 90% compared to 2007 or older.

Managing fuel consumption is a priority for Knight Transportation and results in reduced vehicle carbon emissions. In this effort, processes have been implemented to monitor driving behavior progress as well as modifications made to equipment. One major component of their fleet is approximately 9,500 dry van and refrigerated trailers. Through partnership with a company that manufactures trailer blades, Knight has added these panels to 97% of the fleet. Trailer blades reduce fuel consumption by minimizing the air flow under the trailer and around the back axle. Optimized engine technology, reduced equipment weight, and low rolling resistance tires are additional ways in which Knight Transportation has improved fuel consumption. In addition, 100% of Knight tractors are equipped with bunk heaters, thus reducing the drivers’ need to idle during the cooler winter months.
