NFI continues expansion and commitment to Canada

NFI Industries on Tuesday announced it made some recent appointments to reaffirm its growth and commitment to Canada.

Most recently, the Camden-based supply chain solutions provider announced that Glenn Nicodemus joined its firm with the acquisition of SDR and is expanding his role as he assumes responsibility for all Canadian warehouse facilities at NFI. The expanded role of Nicodemus, a Canadian resident with 30 years of logistics experience, underscores NFI’s commitment to fostering local talent and leveraging decades of industry expertise to drive excellence in Canadian operations.

Additionally, NFI’s intermodal team secured high scores in a 2023 Journal of Commerce survey, solidifying its standing in the Canadian supply chain landscape.

“Glenn’s appointment as president of our Canadian group speaks to his strong leadership and commitment to excellence for our customers and employees,” Kevin Patterson, president of NFI Distribution, said. “Under Glenn’s guidance, NFI is poised for continued success and growth in Canada.”

NFI said its robust Canadian leadership team ensures unparalleled service across all service lines. In a recent 2023 Journal of Commerce survey, NFI received an outstanding Net Promoter Score of 90 for its asset and nonasset intermodal services, primarily managed throughout Canada. The recognition reflects the company’s focus on customer satisfaction and service levels. Notably, NFI excelled in equipment availability and on-time pickup and delivery.

“NFI’s intermodal service reflects our overall strategy to live our commitments to our customers and our carrier partners,” Mark McKendry, senior vice president of intermodal at NFI, said. “We offer flexibility, network optionality, national coverage and one of the most experienced teams in the industry.”

NFI expanded its Canadian reach in 2016 with the acquisition of Dominion Warehousing, building on its already-established presence. In 2022, the company made an investment that doubled its intermodal scale, increasing its Canadian assets to 500 owned dry and refrigerated intermodal containers. The acquisition of SDR in 2023 marked another significant milestone, doubling NFI’s Canadian distribution footprint and its team of supply chain experts.

As it expands, NFI remains dedicated to delivering exceptional supply chain solutions and driving value for its North American partners.
