As a leader in supply chain solutions, NFI’s transportation management (TM) services have been utilized by some of the largest corporations across the country. Led by industry experts, enabled by proprietary TMS technology, the team’s consultative approach designs, implements, and operates customized transportation management solutions that become an extension of its customers’ network. 

As supply chains become more complex, companies are increasingly turning to NFI to transform their operations. Over the past year Lennox International, a leader in commercial and residential climate control products, has worked with NFI’s TM team to re-engineer and centralize its network to provide a complete and real-time view of its supply chain. 

“The collaboration and sharing of business practices between NFI and Lennox’s teams have driven the success of this TM solution from the start,” says Jeff Kanterman, RVP of Transportation Management at NFI. “Building that strong, consultative partnership made implementing a solution easy for NFI, and has given Lennox visibility to their network and generated enormous cost savings at the same time.”

“Our partnership with NFI gave us instant access to transportation experts who drive best-in-class transportation results – both in productivity and service,” said Olivia Leskinen, VP of Supply Chain at Lennox International. 

As a result, Lennox International has awarded NFI with its 2021 Supplier Excellence Gold Award. The award recognizes top supplier partners who delivered industry-leading innovation, premium quality, and solid productivity throughout an extraordinary year filled with adversity.
