Dear Business Partner,

As a valued customer of Forward Air, we want to thank you for allowing us to serve your transportation needs. To enhance the differentiating service that we offer, Forward evaluates costs and marketplace conditions on an annual basis and makes rate adjustments when necessary.

To enable Forward to continue offering high volume capacity to our customers, we are implementing a long linehaul surcharge of 15% to select lanes of 2,000 miles or greater beginning March 1, 2021. Inbound California lanes, outbound Las Vegas lanes and outbound Northeast and Southeast lanes are excluded from the surcharge. Click here for a complete list of lanes subject to the surcharge.

The surcharge will be calculated based on standard Forward system routing and it will appear on invoices as “2KM.”

We are grateful for your continued support. Please contact your sales representative with any questions.

Because it matters, think Forward.
