Forward Air Solutions’ dedicated, national network optimizes your entire supply chain by creating faster, more efficient customized consolidation, last mile handling and distribution of time-sensitive products, all on a pre-determined set "schedule".
Our "scheduled" delivery operations offer a national network with enhanced, flexible, direct-to-store delivery in any market across the United States, with regional dedicated delivery networks in Atlanta, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, Kansas City, Lakeland, Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Antonio, and Tucson.
For large retailers, manufacturers, and distributors, Forward Air has an alternative to LTL for moving your inbound materials and merchandise into your fulfillment centers. Leveraging our network of facilities and trucks that are out making deliveries all over the US every day, Forward Air Solutions can pick up your Vendor shipments, on a scheduled basis, and consolidate those LTL sized shipments into full truckloads moving back to your Distribution Centers. Your inbound materials will arrive on a more predictable schedule, in larger quantities, and with far fewer deliveries at your distribution centers. And all for significantly less cost than LTL.
Forward Air Truckload provides full truckload service for larger point-to-point consignments and dedicated fleet services. Forward Air Solutions’ also works in reverse, easily transporting returns or overstocks back into the distribution network.
Forward Air is a transload expert, assuring secure handling of your international LCL cargo. We offer over 40 strategically located U.S. Customs Container Freight Stations (CFS) and several Central Examination Stations (CES). Our CFS terminals can stuff or strip LCL cargo from an ocean container with speed and precision. Our U.S. and Canada customs bonded facilities allow us to prepare cargo for ocean or air export, manage the sorting and, after clearance, distribute individual consignments. This is a cost effective alternative to acquiring a third-party provider as it eliminates transfers and consolidates invoicing to one service provider.
Forward Air Solutions goes beyond the basics each and every day. As you are the core purpose of our business, our focus is on exceeding your expectations. We actively listen to your requests, drive to enhance our processes as your shipping requirements evolve, and are committed to providing the services you need to keep your business moving forward. Think of Forward Air Solutions as more than just a transportation company. Think of us as your partner.
