From simple handling requirements to complex international shipment management, Forward Air can quickly and economically assist with the consolidation, movement, preparation, control, clearance, storage and distribution of your goods.

Forward Air is a transload expert, assuring secure handling of your international LCL cargo. We offer over 40 strategically located U.S. Customs Container Freight Stations (CFS) and several Central Examination Stations (CES). Our CFS terminals can stuff or strip LCL cargo from an ocean container with speed and precision. Our U.S. and Canada customs bonded facilities allow us to prepare cargo for ocean or air export, manage the sorting and, after clearance, distribute individual consignments. This is a cost effective alternative to acquiring a third-party provider as it eliminates transfers and consolidates invoicing to one service provider.
