Job Description:



Forward Air LTL: Who is Forward Air? Why would a Solo 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:

  • $2,000 Sign On Bonus
  • Realistic, quick, payout schedule
