Knight Transportation Tulare, CA Terminal

Terminal History

The Tulare terminal broke ground in 2004 and officially opened up in 2005 and at the time of its inception was the largest terminal within Knight Transportation.  Conveniently located right in between the bay area in northern California and Los Angeles, the Tulare terminal has become an ideal rest stop for Knight drivers whether they are heading south from PNW or north from Southern California.  Our terminal has grown to include dedicated short haul routes throughout California, a regional fleet and our OTR fleet.  We currently have the largest fleet at Knight Transportation, consisting of 208 trucks and 225 drivers.  The Tulare terminal includes full service shop and weekly orientation classes.  Currently we are partnered with 3 nearby CDL schools (ACI, A&J and Proteus) that help us identify and bring in new drivers.

Tulare gives back to the community and donates multiple times a year to local food banks and animal shelters with left over, rejected or damaged freight. Currently Tulare is partnered with 3 nearby CDL schools (ACI, A&J and Proteus) that help identify and bring in new drivers. Starting in the first quarter of 2020, ACI will also have representatives on-site holding CDL classes and an admissions office. Tulare is proud to partner with ACI who since 1986 have been training qualified driver’s in nearby Fresno and Visalia

Knight Transportation is your hometown national carrier and Tulare is an exceptional example of that motto.
