Leading supply chain solutions provider, NFI, was recently named to Transport Topics’ Top 100 For-Hire Carrier list for 2020. Compiled annually based on revenue from the previous year, NFI moved up one position from last year, ranking 18th overall. The company’s acquisition of G&P Trucking Company in 2019 expanded both NFI’s asset and non-asset transportation services, as well as its southeast footprint. NFI was also recognized as a top provider within the subcategories of truckload/dedicated, intermodal/drayage, refrigerated, flatbed/heavy specialized, and tank/bulk.

“NFI has been recognized as a top logistics company by Transport Topics since the list’s inception, making it the company’s 16th consecutive year ranking as a top for-hire carrier,” said Sid Brown, CEO of NFI. “NFI has demonstrated its adaptability in continuing to grow as a top provider for the last 88 years, and this has paid dividends within the last few months of unprecedented times. We will continue to be flexible and agile in developing innovative solutions that support our customers.”

Operating a dedicated fleet of more than 3,000 tractors and 12,500 trailers throughout North America, NFI ranked 18th in the truckload/dedicated category, moving up six positions from the 2019 list. Specializing in refrigerated transportation, the company ranked 16th in refrigerated category, moving up one position from last year. Today, NFI owns and operates more than 750 temperature-controlled trailers, equipped with state-of-the-art tracking technology and the ability to monitor and control trailer temperature at all times.

NFI offers expertise in handling specialized freight and operates fleets that include lightweight dry vans, flatbeds, tankers, and conestogas, ranking 36th in the flatbed/heavy specialized category and 34th in the tank/bulk category.

A premier port drayage provider since acquiring California Cartage Company in 2017 and G&P Trucking Company in 2019, NFI ranked 11th in the intermodal/drayage category. NFI offers an expansive drayage presence near major ports, rail terminals, and logistics hubs for greater flexibility and capacity for customers, operating throughout California, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Illinois, Washington, Texas, Tennessee, and Alabama.
