On Feb. 21, 2019, the White House announced it has formally stop negotiating with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) over its rollback of auto emissions regulations. This ultimately means that the battle will now move to the courtroom, pitting the State of California and the Trump Administration against one other. California, along with several other states that have adopted its rules, is already involved in a lawsuit with the U.S. Environment Protection Agency (EPA) over its decision to roll back the standards last year. That suit is still pending. California has also indicated it will challenge the Trump administration's final rule in court as well.

TIA’s Mentorship Program has been so successful that we’ve run out of mentors. We’re looking for experienced and successful brokers with some spare time each month who are willing to pass on their knowledge to the next generation of brokers.


Learn how one asset-based logistics company used a horrendous cyberattack as a catalyst to work toward a brighter future, while maintaining a healthy amount of paranoia. Details of the hack will be shared, along with how the company responded, and how they got on a first name basis with lead FBI agents. The webinar will also include some high-level recommendations for what you can do if you find yourself under attack.

TIA joined with TranStrategy Partners in a business alliance to provide a more robust education and services suite for TIA and its membership, starting with the launch of three new assessments available on our site.


Teaching your new employees the basics of brokering in addition to your office operations can be a challenge, so let TIA ease the burden with our unique New Employee Orientation (NEO) course. This course covers all the basics: rules and regulations, how to sell, business ethics and more!



This online course is geared to individuals who need to understand the critical issues and concepts involved in moving perishable loads. It covers important topics such as industry characteristics, heat, trailer conditions, the impact of packaging and loading on perishable products and inspections.
