Since its founding in 1990, Forward Air has significantly grown its core services offering to the North American air freight and expedited LTL markets. November 26, 2015 marked our 25th year of providing services to the transportation and logistics marketplace.
Many great things have taken place during the past 25 years that are worthy of celebration, but what we consider most important are the extraordinary contributions by all of the members of our Forward Air team, employees, as well as our independent contractors.
Without those efforts, we would never have achieved the results that we currently enjoy. In the past decade, we have greatly expanded our service offerings to include an array of logistics services, including pick-up and delivery, intermodal drayage, pool distribution, and specialized temperature-controlled logistics services. As a result, since 1995, Forward Air Corporation has experienced rapid growth in revenue from $63.6 million to $781 million in 2014, and over one billion dollars in 2015!"
