Beginning January 3, 2022, the Forward LTL Premier Booking process will automatically alert you when residential or liftgate services are required. API & EDI customers will default to and receive these accessorial charges automatically if not previously selected. The API & EDI residential default will be seen as Residential Delivery-Will Call for Appointment accessorial. Please contact your sales representative if you have any questions regarding these new enhancements.
We are implementing a general rate increase averaging 7.9% to any shipments tendered on or after February 1, 2022. Distribution-related quotes will be excluded from the general rate increase. Additionally, there will be changes to our accessorial and surcharge schedule, including:
- Capacity Surcharge will continue beyond December 31, 2021 through June 30, 2022.
- 2KM Surcharge will continue beyond December 31, 2021 through June 30, 2022.
- Additional lanes will be added to 2KM Surcharge on February 1, 2022.
A complete list of changes to rates, fees and surcharges is available here.
2021 peak season tender cutoff date for residential delivery services performed by December 25 is Friday, December 10th. Please contact your sales representative for further information.

Based on demand and overall macro supply chain outlook, we anticipate an even greater reliance on our expedited industry during peak season. As a result, Forward will make modifications to some select schedules, pickup and delivery services, commodities accepted, surcharges and rates during the upcoming months to protect the service integrity of our expedited network. These steps are intended to support our customers during this high demand, low-capacity time period. A complete listing of these modifications can be accessed here.
