NFI has acquired G&P Trucking Company, a logistics provider specializing in asset-based transportation, port drayage, and non-asset brokerage solutions, to expand NFI’s coverage of the Southeast.
G&P, headquartered in Columbia, S.C., has been providing transportation services for customers across its 14 locations for more than 80 years, including dedicated, regional, long haul, and Mexico border crossing. The addition of G&P’s 370 tractors and 3,000 trailers will increase NFI’s fleet to more than 3,000 tractors, 12,500 trailers, 2,700 company drivers, and 400 owner-operators.
“Unifying the talents of both NFI and G&P teams, we are excited to bring even greater value to our customers through our robust suite of solutions,” said Sid Brown, CEO of NFI.
Operating at the Ports of Savannah, Norfolk, and Charleston, G&P will expand NFI’s drayage presence in those ports. With the addition of G&P’s 120 owner-operator partnerships, NFI’s drayage fleet will grow to more than 1,500 tractors. NFI said its expansive drayage presence spans major ports, terminals, and logistics hubs across the U.S., offering a full suite of supply chain solutions that includes transloading, consolidation, deconsolidation, and customs exams. The acquisition will also enhance NFI’s brokerage service offerings.
“Powered by the same philosophies as G&P, NFI will allow for greater opportunities for our employees, partners, and customers,” said Clifton Parker, president and general manager of G&P. “We look forward to the future and are eager to continue our growth and success with NFI.”
