Forward Air expands in Groveport


Forward Air Corporation, a leading asset-light freight and logistics company, announced plans to expand its facility in Groveport, investing $31.8 million and creating 50 jobs. Hiring for management and hourly positions will begin once the expansion project is complete.

Forward Air plans to retain and utilize its existing facility at 6800 Port Road in Groveport – near Rickenbacker International Airport – while also acquiring a property at 6700 Port Road. The company is investing approximately $10 million toward the acquisition of the adjacent property and approximately $22 million into the redevelopment of the industrial facility into a 120,000-square-foot office space that will bring 50 new full-time jobs to Groveport.

“The Groveport terminal is our largest national hub, and this redevelopment project allows us to increase capacity and centralize operations,” said Forward President, Chairman and CEO Tom Schmitt.

“Since building its facility here more than two decades ago, Forward has been an integral part of Groveport’s robust logistics sector,” said Groveport Development Director Jeff Green. “The company’s strategic growth further solidifies the Columbus Region as a major player in supply chains across North America, and we look forward to working with the Forward team as they continue to bolster their workforce and operations here.”
