Our schedules are closely monitored daily, weekly, and monthly to insure quality “on time, every time” service.


NEMF workers are our greatest asset. Every NEMF employee is committed to handling your freight expeditiously and damage free. We continually train our people to “do it right the first time, every time.”

In 1977, the Chairman of the Board, Myron P. Shevell, bought New England Motor Freight, a troubled Northeast regional less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier, from Farmland Dairies. Under his leadership, the company has grown from 55 units and five terminals to more than 10,000 pieces of equipment and 40 terminals throughout the Northeast, Midwest and Puerto Rico and is now the region’s fastest-growing family-owned LTL carrier. NEMF also reaches 80 percent of the U.S. population through service partnerships.

Mr. Shevell received an Associate’s Degree from George Washington University and a Bachelor’s Degree from New York University. He also attended the Academy of Advanced Traffic.

Mr. Shevell was named 1999 Master Entrepreneur in the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. The Master Entrepreneur designation recognizes an individual who has maintained management excellence over a sustained period of time. It is one of the most prestigious awards that can be given to an independent business owner in the United States.

Mr. Shevell is Chairman of the New Jersey Motor Truck Association and Vice Chairman of the board of directors of New Jersey Transit. He is a regional director of the Bank of New York, N.A. He is also a member of the National Defense Executive Reserve of the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Traffic Club of North Jersey and the Raritan Traffic Club.
