Ranked as a top brokerage provider, NFI has over 40,000 partner carriers and moves more than 300,000 shipments annually. In addition to expertise in dry truckload and less-than-truckload, NFI’s specialized capabilities include refrigerated, flatbed, over-dimensional, intermodal, and final mile.

“The acquisition of SCR will enhance the service offerings of NFI,” said Sid Brown, CEO of NFI. “SCR will expand NFI’s intermodal solutions, particularly within the refrigerated sector, and increases our presence in the Pacific Northwest. Our shared vision and commitment to customer service makes it a perfect fit for NFI and we look forward to integrating the two companies to further expand our services and better serve our customers. We are excited to have Scott and his team join our company.”
