Join us in sunny Orlando and take advantage of the TIA Learning Center where we’ll offer an array of education sessions designed for 3PLs of all types and sizes. Choose from more than 75 sessions and walk away better prepared to face challenges in the industry.

TIA is aware of 3PLs offering leased trailers in support of their shipper customers whereby the 3PL has pre-loaded trailers pulled by a third-party motor carrier the 3PL has contracted with under their freight broker authority.

We moved our clocks ahead this week and spring is just around the corner. Even though there’s snow in the forecast this week, it looks like spot market rates are already starting to thaw.

Education
  

Interested in learning how to market your company, but don’t know where to begin? TIA’s new Marketing Transportation Brokerage Services course is designed for those who wish to develop a solid foundation in marketing their company.

   

Register early for the April 1 CTB course, and gain access to the course the morning of April 1. The online exam will be administered on Sat., June 29, 2019. The Certified Transportation Broker (CTB) Program is the most-widely recognized designation among 3PLs and sets you apart from your peers. Learn more and register here.

“The CTB course was challenging but rewarding. The material provided insight into many industry topics that I had encountered, but never fully understood.” -- Kenton Sprayberry, BR Williams Trucking, Inc.
