Expedited Linehaul LTL

Linehaul Overview

Forward Air supplies expedited ground transportation between our terminals located near major U.S. and Canadian airports. Placement of our stations and sort centers provide us with the ability to transport freight within our network in a more expedited fashion than traditional LTL ground transportation. This aiport-to-airport (A2A) service is provided to domestic and international airlines, freight forwarders and related logistics businesses. Our network is your network.
