About Forward Air Corporation

Forward Air Corporation operates three business segments, Forward Air, Inc.,
Forward Air Solutions, Inc. and Total Quality, 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 88
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 24 terminals within the
mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Midwest and Southwestern United States.

Total Quality, Inc. utilizes industry-leading temperature-controlled
equipment, 24-hour monitoring and tracking technology and layered security
features to provide our customers with the highest level of service. In
addition to our core pharmaceutical services, we provide brokerage
transportation services. Headquartered in central Michigan, we service the
United States, Canada and Mexico.
