Karen & Roosevelt 

Team Owner Operators 

After years in the trucking industry, this husband and wife team decided to purchase their own truck to become Owner Operators and decided to switch to Forward in 2019 due to pay concerns. When asked about their success as Owner Operators, Karen and Roosevelt said the miles and pay at Forward help make them feel like they can do it. “Forward Air has been excellent,” said Karen, “They always get us home.” 


Solo Owner Operator 
David R. has been with Forward for the long haul. His journey in trucking began in 2004 as a Company Driver. Years later he purchased his first truck and took the leap as an Owner Operator. David says his time at Forward has been good, especially because the people he interacts with daily really care. Forward gives him the consistency he needs. As a dedicated lane driver for Forward, he said, “Knowing where you’re going to go every day, what the miles are going to be, and what your paycheck is going to be allows you to plan,” he said. David is now preparing to grow even more with Forward in the future as a potential fleet owner.
