New England Motor Freight

New England Motor Freight company logo

In 1977, the Chairman of the Board, Myron P. Shevell, bought New England Motor Freight, a troubled Northeast regional less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier, from Farmland Dairies. Under his leadership, the company has grown from 55 units and five terminals to more than 10,000 pieces of equipment and 40 terminals throughout the Northeast, Midwest and Puerto Rico and is now the region's fastest-growing family-owned LTL carrier. NEMF also reaches 80 percent of the U.S. population through service partnerships.
