About Forward

Forward has been listed as one of Forbe's "Top 200 Small Companies" for the last 7 years FAF, Inc. maintains one of the lowest turnover rates in the industry. Drivers want to stay on the FAF team because of the positive work environment, competitive pay and the quality of life our business model offers.

Company Overview

Since 1990, Forward has been a leading provider of ground transportation and related logistics services to the North American air freight and expedited LTL market. We offer surface shipping on an accelerated “time-definite” basis, delivering cargo at a specific time, but under less time-sensitive situations – supplying you with a cost effective, reliable alternative to air transportation. We work with companies of all sizes to develop tangible advantages and build the best products to meet your specific needs. Forward presents to the wholesale transportation community (logistics companies, freight forwarders, integrated air cargo carriers, passenger/ cargo airlines, and non-traditional shippers), a single-source provider that can deliver more supply chain services and a superior menu of choices. Throughout the years we have added supplementary lines to our linehaul service, such as full truckload operations (Truckload Services), final-mile coverage (Complete® Cartage), and an Airline Logistics program, and we will continue to expand our services to meet the changing needs and growth of our customer base.

Forward is structured to optimize both savings and service to our customers. Direct partnerships with owner-operators and other surface transportation providers, enable us to remain cost-competitive. The Forward network is designed with over 90 facilities located at or near major U.S. and Canadian airports, 12 regional sort centers and over 300 beyond points (secondary airports provided through our Complete Cartage service), creating one of the most comprehensive linehaul networks in the industry.

The foundation product for Forward is our expedited linehaul service, offering consistent and reliable transit and on-time, damage-free deliveries. By locating terminals on or near airports and maintaining a scheduled transportation network, we are able to arrange for convenient and consistent service with broad geographic coverage. Shipments of varying sizes (TL/LTL) are received at our terminals and transported by contracted service providers either (1) on a direct truck to the destination terminal, (2) through our Columbus, Ohio central sorting hub, or (3) through one of our 12 regional hubs, where they are unloaded, sorted, and reloaded in rapid fashion. After reloading the shipments, our contracted service providers deliver them to the destination city for early morning recovery. Through our Forward Complete® cartage service, customers also can have shipments picked up from the shipper, delivered to the final consignee, or transferred at the airport, simplifying the freight management processes. These options allow us to maximize handling efficiency of each shipment while minimizing freight loss and damage, improving transit times over traditional ground transportation.

Something HUGE. Something to CELEBRATE. Largest Rate Increase in Forward Air History

We are proud to announce that a per-mile rate increase for Solo and Team Owner Operators has been approved, marking the fourth rate increase in the last four years at Forward Air. This is also the LARGEST cent-per-mile increase Forward Air has EVER done, and we are thrilled to share this milestone with our drivers - past, present and future! At Forward Air, you're more than a number. Success is a team effort, and without our Independent Contracts, Fleet Owners and Fleet Drivers it would not be possible. Not only is Forward growing internally, but we are also invested in growing your business with us.

You are Your Own Boss

This is a company that runs air freight from warehouse to warehouse. Owner/operators for the most part. You chose your loads and where you want to go.Freedom at it's best while driving a semi-truck.

Wonderful Company

What a wonderful company to be a part of. Everyone is so pleasant to speak with, both in person and on the phone. So many times I have told my husband, "it's nice to hear a smile in everyone's voices." We are also proud owners of a piece of Forward Air as we have some shares in stock. Definitely a great match for us here. Thank you to everyone for all that you do to help everyone's job come together so perfectly. This team appreciates all of you.

Marketing Coordinator

I have loved working with Forward Air. Staff here are very friendly and welcoming. They are always willing to help or point you in the right direction if there are any questions or concerns. I've noticed staff all across the company will go above and beyond to help drivers with anything they might need (load information, adding trucks, pay information, etc.)
