  Forward Air Corporation to Present at Wolfe Research Global Transportation   Conference on Tuesday, May 20, 2014  Business Wire  GREENEVILLE, Tenn. -- May 13, 2014  Forward Air Corporation (NASDAQ:FWRD) today announced that on Tuesday, May 20, 2014, at approximately 1:50 p.m. EDT, it will make a presentation at Wolfe Research Global Transportation Conference in New York.  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 leading provider of time-definite surface transportation and related logistics services to the North American expedited ground freight market. We offer our customers local pick-up and delivery (Forward Air Complete™) and scheduled surface transportation of cargo as a cost-effective, reliable alternative to air transportation. We transport 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. We also offer our customers an array of logistics and other services including: expedited full truckload (“TLX”); intermodal/drayage (Central States Trucking, Inc.); dedicated fleets; warehousing; customs brokerage; and shipment consolidation, deconsolidation and handling.  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.
