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

MME provides specialized and international LTL, Full, and Logistics transportation services to a diverse customer base in its service territory in the Upper Midwestern and Far Northwest regions of the United States.

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

The acquisition reflects “the progress made in our continued commitment to build a nationwide LTL footprint, leading to further diversification of our revenue streams,” Knight-Swift officials said in a press release.

“We have identified potential areas of revenue and cost synergies that should lead to growth and margin expansion in line with our ROI targets while preserving MME’s brand, locations, people and culture.” , the company added.
