NFI Launches Brokerage

Cherry Hill, NJ
One of America’s Leaders in Integrated Supply Chain Companies Adds Brokerage to its Suite of Business Solutions
NFI, one of the country’s leaders in supply chain solutions, has launched NFI Brokerage, a new division dedicated to connecting carriers and shippers in order to efficiently move freight across the United States.

“NFI’s vast knowledge and capabilities give us an edge that most competitors don’t have,” said Jim Quinn, Vice President of NFI Brokerage. “There are thousands of transportation brokers out there, but the vast majority of them do not have the advantage of large, established trucking & warehousing networks to complement their brokerage capabilities. NFI has cutting edge technology, significant warehousing & distribution resources; and deep experience and relationships in the trucking industry gained from our 77 years in transportation. This all adds up to value for shippers of all sizes looking for a one-stop shop to meet their logistics needs.”

NFI has been brokering freight transportation for over six years, but until now this service was a “value- add,” reserved for only existing customers, “This year, NFI made the decision to expand this service to new customers, and to broaden the array of services and mode options we offer them. This way we can provide maximum flexibility and efficiency for our existing and future customers,” said Sid Brown, Chief Executive Officer of NFI.

With the launch of a new online presence at www.NFIBrokerage.com, NFI Brokerage allows customers to track their freight on line 24 hours a day. Each customer will have a dedicated, experienced transportation professional with whom they can communicate through every step of the process. NFI ensures all that all of our carriers meet stringent safety, insurance, and service qualifications. This seamless integration of services is facilitated by the use of state-of-the-art Aljex software, specially developed for NFI Brokerage.
