About Forward Air Corporation:

Forward Air Corporation operates two business segments, Forward Air, Inc. and
Forward Air Solutions, Inc.

Forward Air, Inc. is a high-service-level contractor to the air cargo industry
providing time-definite ground transportation services through a network of 84
terminals located on or near major airports in the United States and Canada.
It provides these services as a cost-effective alternative to air
transportation of cargo that must be delivered at a specific time but is
relatively less time-sensitive than traditional air freight or when air
transportation is not economical.

Forward Air Solutions, Inc. is a provider of pool distribution services. Pool
distribution involves the consolidation and shipment of several smaller
less-than-truckload shipments to a common area or region. Once at the regional
destination, the loads are deconsolidated, then grouped with other shipments
with common delivery points, and delivered in a very precise, time-sensitive
manner. Our pool distribution network consists of 19 terminals within the
mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Midwest and Southwestern United States.

This press release and the presentation may contain statements that might be
considered as forward-looking statements or predictions of future operations.
Such statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private
Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are based on management’s belief
or interpretation of information currently available. These statements and
assumptions involve certain risks and uncertainties. Actual events may differ
from these expectations as specified from time to time in filings with the
Securities and Exchange Commission. We assume no duty to update these
statements as of any future date.
