Freight Downcycle Emerges in Knight-Swift's Q4; but Easing Backdrop Not Surprising

Matthew Young Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Matthew Young |

Diversified trucking and logistics specialist Knight-Swift’s fourth-quarter revenue-before-fuel swung to a 10% year-over-year decline—it was up 9% last quarter and more than 43% in the first half. The general theme is that retailer-sector restocking has dried up (high inventory levels) and industrial end markets are softening, thus pressuring volumes across the board. Also, truckload spot rates corrected meaningfully throughout 2022 and contract pricing is now starting to ease, albeit less-than-truckload, or LTL, pricing is holding up better. None of this is a surprise and we've already been baking in a pullback in 2023, though revenue came in shy of our forecast as conditions deteriorated faster than we thought.

Key Statistics KNX

Company Profile KNX

Business Description

Knight-Swift Transportation is by far the largest full-truckload carrier in the United States, but its service offering is quite diversified. About 71% of revenue derives from its asset-based trucking business, with full-truckload (including for-hire dry van, refrigerated, and dedicated contract) making up 58% of total top line and less-than-truckload at 13%. Truck brokerage and other asset-light logistics services make up 15% of revenue, with intermodal near 8%. Knight's intermodal operations use the Class-I railroads for the underlying movement of its shipping containers and also include drayage. The remainder of revenue reflects various services offered to shippers and third-party truckers including insurance, equipment maintenance, and equipment leasing.
