NFI announces it will acquire Network Logistic Solutions, a 3PL with locations in Jacksonville, Fla., Savannah, Ga., and Muskogee, Okla.

Network Logistic Solutions will become part of NFI Distribution, the warehouse and distribution division of NFI. The acquisition will add 516 employees to NFI’s payroll and an additional 3 million square feet to the distribution space managed by the company, for a total of 18 million square feet.

“This acquisition enables NFI to provide the Network Logistic Solutions customer base with access to a vast network of integrated services–a one-stop shop for supply chain solutions,” says Sid Brown, CEO of NFI. “It also strengthens our network with growing geographic presence in the critical port cities of Jacksonville and Savannah and by opening a new presence in Oklahoma.”

Pat Byrnes, formerly vice president of operations for Network Logistic Solutions, will join NFI Distribution as regional vice president of operations.
