The sum was described as a loss of revenue from its LTL (less-than-load) trucking business and not costs incurred from dealing with the incident.

The losses stemmed primarily because of the Company’s need to temporarily suspend its electronic data interfaces with its customers, Forward Air said in SEC documents filed today.
