Mission Statement
For customers who need their freight delivered when it really matters, with precision, and with the highest level of care, Think Forward.

Forward Air

Forward Air (FWRD) started as a vision in 1981 to provide a precise, cost-effective, expedited ground transportation alternative to air freight. Now, over 40 years later, Forward has evolved into the preferred supply chain partner for companies across North America.

Headquartered in Greeneville, TN, Forward offers expedited less-than-truckload (LTL), final mile, intermodal drayage, and truckload (TL) services to businesses. Forward trucks are delivering goods to customers and communities across the U.S. and Canada, reaching more than 94% of the combined population. Goods transported range from lifesaving medicines and medical equipment to furniture and accessories for homes and businesses.

Forward’s transportation network and commitment to precision execution enable the fastest transit times and maximum handling efficiency, while minimizing freight loss and damage over traditional ground transportation providers. With consistent and reliable transit and on-time, damage-free deliveries, we keep your business moving Forward.
