Forward Air, a provider of ground transportation and related logistics services to the North American air freight and expedited LTL market, has selected the nuDeliverIt mobile delivery tracking solution from NuVizz after an extensive competitive review.
With nuDeliverIt, Forward Air will have real-time visibility to deliveries in transit and electronic proof of delivery support to provide critical and timely supply chain information to customers.

Its TLX segment provides expedited truckload brokerage, dedicated fleet services, and maximum security and temperature-controlled logistics services.
