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.
