Your container has arrived. How do you complete its journey?

Moving your cargo or container from a port or railyard can require some heavy lifting. Forward’s intermodal linehaul network helps you get your cargo from ports and railyards to where it needs to go. We offer integrated container trucking and delivery—we move your cargo from port or rail yard with our over-the-road linehaul and LTL network of carriers. We can deliver or pick up containers, broker services, and handle specialized shipments just about anywhere.


Get it where it needs to be. Fast.

Expedited shipments are our specialty. We understand the importance of time-sensitive transportation and have built our business around meeting rigorous demands. Our linehaul network features one of the most complete and extensive Midwest service offerings and includes nightly schedules between ORD, MKE, DTW, IND, and CLE.

In addition, Forward Intermodal’s network offers local LTL pick-up and delivery services. Plus, real-time driver tracking and proof of delivery signatures ensure that you have best-in-class visibility of your critical LTL and linehaul shipments.


Brokerage. Services that match your needs.

Your cargo needs to go places. Forward has connections to help you do it. Forward’s brokerage services work on your behalf to help arrange shipment of your freight. We leverage our extensive nationwide network of carriers to match your needs with carrier capabilities. From start to finish, we manage the logistics for you.


Expedited Airport-to-Airport (A2A). Timing is everything.

Forward’s scheduled A2A linehaul options are dedicated to time-definite, inter-city movement of cargo and can be customized to your specific needs. With 93 stations and 12 regional sorting hubs, serving more than 8,200 lane segments or routes each business day, you can count on your freight getting there on time.

Plus, if your cargo doesn’t fit in a standard shipping container or cargo bin, our air freight break bulk services can transport it safely and securely.
