NFI, a leading supply chain solutions provider, was recently named to Transport Topics' Top 100 For-Hire Carrier list. Compiled based on revenue, NFI ranked 17th overall, moving up 10 positions from last year. NFI was also recognized in numerous subcategories including truckload/dedicated, intermodal/drayage, refrigerated, flatbed/heavy specialized, and tank/bulk.

Operating a dedicated fleet of more than 4,000 tractors and 9,000 trailers, NFI ranked 25th in the truckload/dedicated category. The company also specializes in refrigerated transportation, ranking 16th in Transport Topics' refrigerated category. NFI currently runs over 1,000 temperature-controlled trailers, equipped with the latest technology to enhance safety and performance.

Additionally, NFI is an expert in handling specialized freight and operates fleets that include lightweight dry vans, flatbeds, tankers, and conestogas, ranking 32nd in the flatbed/heavy specialized category and 21st in the tank/bulk category.
