NFI Company Review

NFI

NFI company logo

NFI traces its roots to a small company founded in 1932 by Israel Brown to establish a regional business for transporting goods. Growth occurred during World War II as the company received its operating certificate and won important work with the construction of the General Services Administration Depot in Belle Mead, NJ. As a result, the company had 15 trucks and trailers at the end of World War II.

The company continued to grow after the war and began hauling for the Veterans Administration in Hillsborough, NJ and became National Freight. Further growth occurred during the 1950s as the company bought or acquired ICC rights to operate in eight Mid-Atlantic States. Important non-government customers during this period included Anchor Hocking and Owens Illinois and, as a result, the company began hauling glass bottles in closed trailers.

The company has continued to grow during the years and has become a leading transportation operation offering nationwide Truckload, Dedicated Contract Carriage transportation services.
