A pair of New Jersey logistics companies have earned places on Logistics Management’s ranking of the top trucking companies, released Monday.

The rankings, based on revenue, saw Elizabeth-based NEMF earn the No. 19 spot among less-than-truckload carriers, with $402 million in 2017 revenue. Meanwhile, Cherry Hill-based NFI Industries ranked 25th among truckload carriers, with $520 million in 2017 revenue.

“NFI is honored to be included on Logistics Management’s Top 50 Trucking Companies list,” Sid Brown, CEO of NFI, said in a prepared statement. “We work hard every day to provide exceptional value to our customers through innovation, technology, and unparalleled customer service. We are excited to see what the future holds.”

NFI’s revenue was up 6.1 percent from 2016, above the Truckload Top 25’s average 5.4 percent gain. NEMF, the former New England Motor Freight, saw revenue rise 1 percent from 2016, which trailed the LTL Top 25’s average of 7.8 percent.
