Cherry Hill, NJ (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
NFI, a leading supply chain company headquartered in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is pleased to be recognized as a Top 100 3PL and Cold Storage Provider for 2013 by Food Logistics magazine.
Food Logistics selected NFI for the prestigious award because NFI delivers cold storage services that utilize more than 700 refrigerated trailers, 170 refrigerated intermodal containers, and refrigerated warehouse space across North America. These assets provide NFI customers with temperature-controlled storage and transport options for the food, bakery, produce, beverage, and candy industries.
To further meet the needs of its customers, NFI pioneered the use of domestic intermodal refrigerated containers in the U.S. These containers are capable of being double-stacked while moving long-distances on trains, which helps shippers save money versus antiquated refrigerated trailer intermodal service.
Ike Brown, President of NFI Intermodal, acknowledged that, “NFI understands the challenges that consumers demand. In an effort to sustain profitability and deliver high quality service, NFI has mastered customizable, responsive, and scalable solutions to meet all of NFI customers’ needs. We are very excited to receive recognition from Food Logistics.” NFI’s logistics solutions maximize operational efficiencies, including managing freight fulfillment and taking effective control of customers’ supply chain needs.
This prestigious recognition is one of many that have been bestowed on NFI this year. Other awards include Lowe’s Double Platinum Carrier Award, NJBIZ Top 100 Privately Held Businesses, Dedicated Partner of the Year, Top 100 3PL Providers, and Green Supply Chain Partners.
