Working for Knight Transportation
Drivers who work for Knight Transportation (job board) can't say enough about the vehicles they drive. Every vehicle in the fleet of trucks that the company owns, is well maintained, is generally less than two years old and comes complete with a large cab with all the comforts of home, CD player, Qualcomm, and many other comforts that make the job easier to perform. The company even provides an auxiliary heater system so drivers can sleep comfortably while on the road without idling engine noise. Knight Transportation has mostly Volvo 670 tractors in its fleet because of the models fatigue-reducing cabs and extra maneuverability due to their setback axles. Peterbilt tractors make up the balance of the fleet for those drivers who prefer a more traditional feel to what they drive. Regardless of make, every vehicle is a late model truck which is thoroughly maintained to reduce any downtime for the drivers. The company also prides itself on arranging schedules so that drivers are able to get home on a regular basis to spend time with their families.
