NFI is highly experienced in servicing supply chains in the food and beverage industries through end-to-end warehousing and transportation capabilities.

“Our growing list of 3PLs and cold storage providers indicates how important these two segments are to the food industry and the level of expertise and services required to support today’s growers and processors, shippers, and grocery retailers,” noted Lara L. Sowinski, editor-in-chief for Food Logistics. “Assuring a safe and secure global food supply chain is paramount. In addition, reducing food waste, managing fuel and energy costs, and responding to new demands related to omnichannel retailing are just some of the expectations the food industry has of their 3PL and cold storage providers.”
