You don’t have to be an expert in freight or logistics to secure reliable transportation for your cargo. You just need the right partner to help you find the best shipping solution for your business. That’s where Forward’s brokerage service is ready to help.

So, how does a freight brokerage work?

You have cargo that needs to be shipped. Forward has connections to help you do it. Forward’s brokerage services work with trucking companies (carriers) on your behalf to help arrange shipment of your freight. We leverage our extensive nationwide network of carriers to match your needs with the carrier’s capabilities. And then we manage the logistics for you from start to finish, including:

  • Identifying the best method of shipment
  • Securing a carrier
  • Monitoring the shipment
  • Providing clear communication

Drivers you can depend on

Forward has spent over 40 years developing relationships with carriers that meet strict standards. We only broker with carriers that are certified, insured, and have the proper permits. Our goal is to become a reliable partner in your ground transportation porograms. Our name may not be on the truck, but our partners are still representing Forward, and we hold them to the same standards as we do our own fleet. 

Agile, flexible, and scalable services

If there’s one constant in today’s world, it’s change. Shifting inventory levels and supply chain snags can make business hard to manage. 

Because of our extensive network, we can quickly and efficiently scale capacity to meet your shipping needs. We operate a brokerage with access to over 45,000 trucks, and service options ranging from standard and expedited less-than-truckload delivery to full truckload, Door-to-Door (D2D), and local Pickup and Delivery (PUD). 

Services based on need

The size of your shipment, the frequency, and the time constraints help us find your ideal carrier match. Whether you’re looking for a straight truck or a drop deck trailer, we have the expertise and a network to service your needs.
