Fast Forwarding is structured and founded on the simple idea that people are paying too much for critical shipments and getting too little in the way of customer service. We target the air/expedited/critical market because there is a demand for a reliable, service-focused, and inexpensive alternative to air. Our growth is a direct result of this commitment.
Zero tolerance: 100% on time commitment.
We provide the customer with up to the minute location 24 hours per day/365 days per year via satellite, cell phone and/or GPS communications. If there are any delays, we inform you immediately. Upon delivery, a signed proof of delivery (POD) is available.
Fast Forwarding will only fly those shipments that cannot move economically via surface. In light of the enhanced security issues at the airports, flying product has become more costly and less predictable.
Alternatively, we put two drivers in state of the art equipment and run them direct from your door to the customer’s door. By not flying the product, there are no delays due to terminal relays, re-handling or bumped flights.
Fast Forwarding has the best expedited rates available. We welcome comparative pricing and can provide rate quotes 24 hours per day.

Intermodal Rail services are available throughout North America. These services provide the greatest rate savings on truckload shipments and are an efficient alternative to over the road truck services.
This operation is based on the simple notion of taking a 48 or 53 ft trailer and loading or piggybacking that unit on top of a rail flatcar. The trailers are lifted on and off these rail cars and the actual shipment is picked up and delivered with a regular tractor trailer. These shipments sometimes require additional packaging support and the transit times can be slower that over the road transportation, however, the savings can be outstanding-particularly on coast to coast shipments.
20, 40, 48 and 53 ft containers are loaded from the Far East onto ships bound for the US. These containers are then unloaded on the West Coast onto rail cars that transport these containers and products throughout the US and Canada. The double stack phrase derives from the railroads ability to stack two of these containers on a low riding rail car and clear normal bridge heights. The Shipping Lines need these containers back on the West Coast and provide the Railroads with incentives to return them to their ships. This translates into great savings for those shippers moving products to California, Oregon, Washington and BC.
