Founded in 1932, NFI is an end-to-end supply chain solutions provider with more than 11,3000 employees and over 300 locations throughout North America.

Today, NFI operates more than 4,000 tractors and 9,700 trailers within its dedicated and drayage fleet while its distribution portfolio spans approximately 50 million square feet.
NFI’s strategic acquisitions over the past two years have contributed to the company’s year-over-year growth. In early 2017, NFI acquired Dominion Warehousing & Distribution, which strengthened NFI’s expertise in the food, beverage, consumer products, specialty chemicals, and appliance industries, as well as enhanced its Canada footprint. California Cartage Company, acquired in late 2017, enabled NFI to expand its presence at major ports, enhancing its port drayage, transloading, deconsolidation, customs examination, and warehousing service offerings. Additionally, the acquisition of SCR in 2018 expanded NFI’s brokerage solutions and enhanced its refrigerated intermodal capabilities.
In addition to acquisitions, NFI has continued to grow organically through its service offerings. With a focus on innovation, the company has become a pioneer in sustainable transportation, partnering with industry-leading vehicle manufacturers to operate electric trucks. NFI has also implemented robotics and automation within its warehouses to create greater efficiencies for customers, as well as enrich the employee experience. With over 40,000 partner carriers and 10 offices in North America, NFI’s brokerage team offers customers capacity at a moment’s notice, while the company’s real estate team enables distribution solutions spanning leasing, rental, and construction of custom build-to-suit facilities.
