Expedited LTL Linehaul

Consistent, reliable, on-time, damage-free transportation

You have freight that needs to be moved. We have the network to do it.

How do you know if your shipment is Less-than-Truckload (LTL)?  We’ll help you figure it out. Forward’s nationwide network of buildings, trucks, and routes helps keep your business moving forward—across country or across town.

LTL Linehaul explained.

As an integral part of your shipping process, terminal locations are key. They serve as a place for your freight to be transferred between lines or routes. Linehaul is the movement of your freight between cities. Put the two together and the linehaul service is how your freight gets from one location to another. And, if your cargo won’t fill a trailer, it’s less-than-truckload (LTL). 

We cover a lot of ground so that you can, too.

Because our terminals are strategically placed in or near airports and we maintain a scheduled transportation network, you can depend on convenient and consistent service across a broad geographic area. And if you need delivery to the door, we also have a service for that. Plus, we work to maximize the efficiency of each shipment from a cost and time standpoint.

Your business deserves the best. 

Forward offers a cost-effective, reliable alternative to air transportation with one of the most comprehensive linehaul networks in the country, including:

  • 100+ terminals located at or near major U.S. and Canadian airports
  • 12 regional sorting hubs 
  • An abundance of beyond points that extend reach outside of major airports to regional airports 
  • 8,200+ lane segments—routes between the point of shipment and point of delivery—each business day

Inter-city shipments made easy.

Understanding that business as usual is anything but predictable, your service can include time-definite delivery, late cutoffs, early recovery times, weekend service in select areas, and expedited lanes to help you keep your business moving forward.

Bottom line, we focus on getting your freight where it needs to go, when it needs to be there, so that you can focus on what matters most—your business.
