Leading companies rely on Forward Air Solutions to transport products to deliver and stock their stores nationwide.
Forward Air Solutions was established in 2007 upon its acquisition of USA Carriers, Inc., a recognized leader in the regional distribution transportation industry for over 25 years. This service is commonly referred to as pool distribution in the transportation industry, which is a customized consolidation and delivery process that controls costs and more effectively replenishes a company’s network of stores in both major cities and more remote communities.
Our goal is to provide a national network of pool operations to give retail companies and other industries more comprehensive options for their specialized distribution needs. With a significant number of pools and a strong customer base, Forward Air Solutions immediately leveraged the assets of the Forward Air enterprise to create new technology systems, cross-utilize equipment and invest in improvements to the core distribution product at each facility. Our nationwide reach grew further in 2008 upon the acquisition of certain assets from Service Express, Inc. and Pinch Group. The assets from those acquisitions were integrated into the Forward Air Solutions operations, increasing our network coverage in markets such as Texas, Georgia and Virginia, creating a nearly coast-to-coast pool distribution network in less than two years.
