NFI, a leading supply chain solutions provider, was recently named a Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation for 2020 for the second consecutive year. Redefining the Road magazine, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association (WIT), established the award to promote the accomplishments of companies that are focused on the employment of women in the trucking industry. More than 13,000 votes were cast to identify the top companies named to the list. NFI will be recognized at the upcoming virtual WIT Accelerate! Conference & Expo, taking place November 12-13, 2020.
Privately-held and family-owned since its founding in 1932, NFI is committed to fostering a diverse workplace across its organization consisting of 13,100 associates, including over 3,000 company drivers operating its dedicated fleet. Offering flexible scheduling to maintain a work-life balance while also encouraging continuous professional development to accelerate careers, NFI recognizes its women drivers throughout its “She Drives” initiative. “She Drives” was established in 2018 as a way to highlight female NFI drivers and why they believe NFI is a great place to work for women. Since the launch of the initiative, which recognized and acknowledged the barriers that exist for women in the transportation industry, the company has continued to increase its female driver population.
“NFI is dedicated to driving diversity and inclusion, and is committed to ensuring women are appropriately represented in leadership and employee development opportunities,” said Bob Knowles, President of Transportation at NFI. “As a top place to work for employees from different backgrounds, ethnicities, and genders, NFI continues to develop and invest in new strategies to further diversify our company and bring new perspectives.”
The company serves customers throughout a variety of industries, including retail and ecommerce, food and beverage, manufacturing, and consumer packaged goods. In addition to also being recognized as a Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation in 2019, NFI was also named an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Company for 2020 and a winner of the Delaware Valley Top Workplaces 2019 Award by the Philadelphia Inquirer.
