Leading supply chain solutions provider, NFI, has been named to Transport Topics’ Top 100 For-Hire Carrier list for 2021. Compiled annually based on revenue from the previous year, NFI moved up two positions from last year, ranking 16th overall. The company’s acquisition of G&P Trucking Company in 2019 and CAI Logistics in 2020 expanded both NFI’s asset and non-asset transportation services, as well as its North American footprint. NFI was also recognized as a top provider within the subcategories of truckload/dedicated, intermodal/drayage, refrigerated, flatbed/heavy specialized, and tank/bulk.
