The company serves customers throughout a variety of industries, such as food and beverage, consumer packaged goods, manufacturing, and retail, all of which rely on NFI to transport freight and store inventory in a timely, safe, and secure manner.
As the company continues to expand, NFI leverages partnerships with industry-leading technology providers, such as CargoNet, to ensure its customers’ supply chains operate as seamlessly and efficiently as possible. Factors considered for the award include the company’s willingness and ability to commit resources to security, the functionality of its standard operating procedures and best practices, and the extent to which it utilizes the CargoNet program.
