New England Motor Freight (NEMF) Files Chapter 11


New England Motor Freight has filed for Chapter 11 relief in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. NEMF will use the proceedings to wind down its operations. 

NEMF operates a regional LTL network in the northeastern U.S. It also has truckload and international shipping operations. All of these entities are closing down. 

How this news affects you
First and most important: Universal Traffic Service proactively delivered out the freight we were managing within NEMF’s networks. These shipments were not affected in any way by the bankruptcy filing. 

Second, we have stopped placing freight with NEMF. You will notice that New England Motor Freight no longer appears as an option on our LTL carrier selection screens. We’ve also removed NEMF from carrier rankings. 

Please contact your UTS account manager if you have any questions or want to review your carrier rankings.
