GREENEVILLE, Tenn., December 01, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Forward Air Corporation (NASDAQ: FWRD) (the "Company" or "Forward") announced today that it is notifying customers of a general rate increase ("GRI") of 7.9 percent applicable to rates established under the existing tariffs effective February 1, 2022. Selected accessorial charges and minimum charges will also be impacted. Additional information can be found at www.forwardair.com.

The GRI is intended to offset rising costs associated with the challenging operating environment, and we believe will allow Forward to continue investing in service enhancement, fleet maintenance, technology innovations, and other areas to serve customers more effectively and efficiently.
