    One-on-One: A Conversation with Knight-Swift CEO Adam Miller

    Few people have as broad a view of the US trucking industry as Adam Miller, who became CEO of the largest US truckload provider, Knight-Swift Transportation Holdings, in February. Miller took the helm of the company after 22 years as CFO. He played important roles in the Knight-Swift merger in 2017, and in several mergers and acquisitions since then. He now leads a more diversified Knight-Swift, with full truckload, less-than-truckload, logistics, and intermodal business lines. In some respects, Knight-Swift's transformation reflects changes in the US trucking industry and the changing needs of shipper customers. In this one-on-one discussion with Journal of Commerce senior editor Ari Ashe, Adam will discuss Knight-Swift's view the future, not just of the company but the trucking industry as a whole; what he's hearing from key customers about the business and freight demand; how Knight-Swift plans to complete its expansion into LTL; the expansion of its truckload business with U.S. Xpress; and more.
