Forward Air Corporation Announces New LTL Service in Savannah, Georgia


Forward Air Corporation (NASDAQ: FWRD) (the "Company or "Forward") is executing a growth strategy that involves organic infrastructure investments as well as acquisitions of complementary businesses. Today Forward announced an organic growth initiative and it will now offer less-than-truckload (LTL) service in Savannah, Georgia.

Forward LTL will initially operate from the Company's Final Mile facility in Savannah and will evaluate the future need for a separate location based on growth. With this expansion, Forward begins a larger journey to grow and evolve its LTL network to broader market coverage beyond its airport-to-airport footprint.

Tom Schmitt, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "This is an exciting time at Forward as we continue to flex our muscle. Savannah marks the first time that we have expanded our LTL network beyond our current airport-to-airport footprint. We are also leveraging our Final Mile network to greatly reduce the level of investment required for this LTL expansion. Savannah is a great example of the synergies within our networks that offer opportunities for growth."

With the addition of LTL, the Company brings a full assortment of services to the Savannah market, including export pickup, import delivery, intermodal drayage, flatbed services and final mile delivery to bring products directly to customers' homes.
