Since 1980, Forward Intermodal has been a leading provider of intermodal drayage, linehaul/LTL, and warehousing related logistics services to the domestic and international transportation industry. A wholly-owned subsidiary of Forward Air Corporation, our mission is to deliver safe, time-definite, damage-free transportation solutions to the intermodal, expedited, and CFS industries.

Currently operating drayage terminals in 22 locations throughout the United States, our growth plan remains robust and strategic, and our value creation is preserved in four primary areas:

  • Experience: We boast a highly-trained team with deep industry contacts and diverse transportation backgrounds.
  • Technology: We strive to remain ahead of the curve within the ever-changing drayage industry. Our innovative technological approach is evidenced by our tech-savvy drivers (all use tablets) and comprehensive container visibility tools for our customers.
  • Customer Service: Partnering with major Beneficial Cargo Owners, Steamship Lines, IMCs, and Freight Forwarders, we take a steadfast approach to customer service and communication at all levels of our organization in order to establish the strongest long-term relationships with our customers.
  • Capacity: We understand that drivers are the key to our success, and that our recruiting and retention of our fleet is top priority in any environment. We maintain a good balance of owner-operators and company drivers to help account for our customers’ peaks and valleys, and take a creative approach to new ways to create capacity.
