Damage and loss are no strangers to the LTL industry; however, Forward Air Freight prides itself on its low damage rate. That said, when freight is transported via LTL, it is constantly being moved around; virtually anything can happen. That is why it is very important to correctly palletize or crate freight prior to handing it to the driver at pickup.
