CAMDEN, N.J., Sept.

15, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — NFI, a third-party logistics company, was recently recognized as a 2021 Top 100 Trucker by Inbound Logistics. Chosen from a 400+ candidate pool, the annual list is published in the September issue as an in-depth directory and offers readers the ability to match the solutions providers best suited to their trucking needs and requirements. “In today’s environment, partnering with a reliable and responsible transportation provider is more important than ever,” said Sid Brown, CEO of NFI. “NFI’s flexibility and agility is especially clear through our customers’ success during the pandemic- and climate-related volatility over the past year.

By remaining nimble, we have been able to keep their supply chains running, despite the challenges across the globe. We have ambitious goals for operating a transparent and sustainable supply chain network.” NFI is leading the transition to zero-emission goods movement.

The company operates the largest fleet of BETs in the U.S., and has achieved over 500,000 miles of operation since launching in 2020 ? more than any other commercial carrier in the United States. In late August, NFI secured more than £107.7 million to build the largest zero-emission tractor fleet in the U.S. and lay the foundation to scale the zero-emission market in goods movement.

Four projects are underway in Southern California, which by 2024, will allow NFI to:

  • operate the first 100% zero-emission drayage fleet in California
  • operate the first 100% zero-emission freight logistics facility in the United States
  • develop one of the country’s largest networks of chargers for commercial fleets (including 48 high-capacity DC fast chargers)
  • establish one of the nation’s first training programs for zero-emission vehicle techs
  • build more than 5MW of energy storage
