Forward Air: Surface Transport

March 12, 2015

Forward Air is headquartered in Greeneville, Tennessee. It offers time-definite surface transportation and related logistical services to the North American air freight and expedited LTL market. As a cost effective reliable alternative to air transportation, Forward Air offers scheduled surface transportation cargo.

The company delivers air freight that must be delivered at a specific time, but less time-sensitive than traditional integrated services. Forward Air has a network of freight terminals located on or near airports in 87 US and Canadian cities. This includes their central sorting facility in Columbus, Ohio and 11 regional sorting centers that the company states is the most effective linehaul network in the industry. Forward Air uses a flexible source of capacity made up of owner-operators and, to a lesser extent, other surface transportation providers, which results in a largely variable cost operating model with low capital requirements.

The company provides a full menu of neutral logistics services including: Forward Air Complete®, an integrated end to end service for the wholesale shipping community combining linehaul with pickup and delivery options for reliable, single source transportation. Other services are Forward Air Complete®, Forward Air Truckload Xpedited℠ and more.
