TForce and CFI Logistics, two operating companies of TFI International, have launched a new integrated service combining dedicated final-mile delivery networks with truckload transportation assets and logistics management expertise to support high-velocity, time-definite supply chain operations.
Dallas-based TForce is a North American customized final-mile logistics company. By partnering with Joplin-based CFI Logistics, the company extends its service portfolio to include middle-mile trucking, transportation planning and optimization expertise and same-day final-mile delivery.
Same-day final-mile delivery is a growing segment of the transportation market. Reliable middle-mile trucking is critical to timely replenishment of inventories staged in TForce’s last-mile distribution centers, which support rapid-response fulfillment of ecommerce orders, according to TFI.
“As a result of this partnership, it’s now a much deeper solution that adds middle-mile expertise to a premier network providing final-mile, same-day delivery advantage,” said Scott Leveridge, U.S. president of TForce.
TForce operates a network of 60 distribution and product staging centers in the U.S., with nearly 4,400 dedicated last-mile delivery trucks. TForce’s capabilities include expedited last mile service for parcel, package, freight and large-format goods delivered into homes or businesses. CFI Logistics provides supply chain planning, optimization and transportation management services.
The new integrated service is available starting this month.
“Joining the resources of TForce, which has one of the nation’s most extensive and reliable final-mile delivery networks, with CFI Logistics’ planning and optimization capabilities, and the extensive assets of CFI, brings a unique solution to the market that’s ideally suited for these needs,” said Bill Carter, vice president of CFI Logistics.
