NFI to Advance Sustainability Efforts with Tesla Semi Trucks

Cherry Hill, NJ – WEBWIRE

NFI, a leading supply chain solutions provider, has announced its commitment to expand its fleet with electric Tesla Semi trucks. As one of North America’s premier dedicated transportation and port drayage providers, NFI continually seeks new technology to improve its environmental impact.

Recognized as an EPA SmartWay High Performer and three-time EPA SmartWay Excellence Award winner, sustainability is a core principle to NFI. As new sustainability practices and innovations become available, NFI has continually tested and implemented technology including aerodynamics, natural gas, and now electric vehicles.

“I am eager for NFI to continue moving toward this next chapter where sustainability plays an even larger role in the story,” said Ike Brown, NFI Vice Chairman and President. “It is essential that NFI, and the entire industry, continues to find ways to minimize its environmental impact. Combining Tesla’s innovative technology with the best practices NFI already has in place, I look forward to further advancing NFI’s position as a responsible corporate citizen while making our dedicated and drayage fleets more sustainable.”

After recently acquiring CalCartage in October 2017, NFI operates one of the largest drayage fleets in North America. Its drayage operation has a substantial presence at major ports in the United States, including California where significant action plans have been announced to reduce and ultimately eliminate emissions. NFI’s commitment to testing and adding electric Tesla Semi trucks is another effort NFI is taking to support these sustainability initiatives.

Privately held by the Brown family since its inception in 1932, NFI generates nearly $2 billion in annual revenue and employs nearly 10,000 associates.
