As a Forward Intermodal Customer you expect real time information to efficiently run your business. Forward intermodal provides customers with a web portal to help you do this. Our drivers are constantly updating the shipment information and providing location updates. Forward Intermodal customers can view this information anytime by using the ActiveLoad Lookup.

There are two basic reports, the Container Visibility Report and the Bill To Report. If you are a consignee, you will most likely run the Container Visibility Report, as this report will show all of the Forward Intermodal shipments delivering to your location. The Bill To Report will show the shipments for which you will be invoiced. There is also an Enhanced Report that shows reference numbers as well as shipments completed in the last three days.
These reports presort your shipments into categories and show a recap of activity. This report can be very helpful when deciding which loads to schedule next.
Exporting To Microsoft Excel
All of our reports can be exported to an Excel spreadsheet and saved to your PC. You must have a copy of Excel installed on your PC to view a report saved in this manner.
If you don't need the entire report and just want to see the information on a single container or reference number, this is the function you would run. You can also view the Container Search information by clicking on the blue hyperlinks on the web reports.
