Our Story

The History of NFI is a History of Family

In 1932, Israel Brown established a hauling company out of Vineland, New Jersey. What started as a single truck company has expanded into a leading, multi-faceted third-party logistics provider – servicing all of North America. Today, NFI is recognized as a top privately-held, family-owned business led by Sid, Ike and Jeff Brown.

“You must be a risk taker. Try new things. Be entrepreneurial.”
