Knight-Swift acquired RAC MME Holdings and its subsidiaries, which operate under the brand names Midwest Motor Express and Midnite Express.

MME provides less-than-truckload, full truckload, and specialized and international logistics transportation services to a diverse customer base in its service territory in the upper midwestern and great northwestern regions of the United States.

The regional footprint complements Knight-Swift’s southeastern and midwestern LTL presence alongside its AAA Cooper Transportation brand. Together, the brands cover half of the United States.

The acquisition reflects “progress on our ongoing commitment to building a nationwide LTL footprint, leading to the further diversification of our revenue streams,” Knight-Swift officials said in a press

“We have identified potential areas of revenue and cost synergies that are expected to lead to growth and margin expansion consistent with our return-on-investment targets while preserving MME’s brand, locations, people, and culture,” the company added.
