      Job Description

      Job Description:

      Forward Air LTL:

      Who is Forward Air?

      Why would an Owner Operator consider leasing on to Forward Air's OTR LTL program?

      Well, for starters - Our recruiters are forced to sing their choice of "Single Ladies" by Beyonce or "Free Bird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd if caught giving ANY bad information to a prospective driver. If it happens again, they are required to get a jail-style tattoo of their boss on their bicep. All kidding aside, our team is laser-focused on describing what makes Forward Air's LTL opportunity DIFFERENT than the gimmicky opportunities with other carriers. Remember - their crappy door signs probably leave a bunch of sticky goo on your beautiful truck. Our door signs don't typically get peeled off very often (if you know what I'm saying - see retention bullet point below)

      For a limited time, as we position ourselves to grow our fleet following several customer awards:

      • $10,000 Sign On Bonus
        • Realistic, quick, payout schedule
        • Includes $$ after your first load to help offset transition costs.

      The Opportunity: Run as a team from coast to coast (Or on a national/regional dedicated if available) from Forward Air location to Forward Air location, with our lightly loaded dry van trailers, and turn your truck into a revenue-generating machine!
