Industry News and Advocacy

The Fiscal Year 2020 appropriations bill that included several key provisions related to the transportation industry was passed on May 23, 2019 by the House Transportation, Housing and Urban Development or THUD Appropriations Subcommittee of the Full House Appropriations Committee. One of the most concerning provisions included in the approved text to the 3PL industry, is the reposting of all CSA scores and alerts.

The TIA 3PL Marketing Reports provide a representative understanding of what is happening within this business sector. The publication is based on a monthly survey of TIA members who submit real operating data, and answer questions on business conditions affecting the 3PL industry. TIA’s efforts are providing a truly comprehensive report on the trends and practices of the 3PL industry.

   

The report contains rolling eight-quarter trends and fuel price comparisons, and allows 3PLs and industry observers to view how the industry is performing as well as to compare their business to companies of a similar size.

Picture this: It’s Thursday afternoon, you’re sitting at your desk daydreaming about the weekend when the phone rings and it’s one of your agents advising you that there’s been an accident. A truckload of freight from your least favorite customer was completely destroyed in a trailer fire. Your first thought is “Oh, no. Why did I come to work today?”

The topic of automatic trucks appears at times like a gee-whizz fantasy. It could happen someday, but too far out for today's industry to worry about. In this webinar, TIA's transportation economist Noël Perry takes a closer look at this phenomenon and will speculate on how we will get from here to there. His conclusions, as usual, include some big surprises, in this case in two important ways: Highway automation is more about cars than trucks. That's one. And two: there are some powerful intermediate steps in this change that will be requiring your attention much sooner than you think. Tune in to find out! 

When: Wed., June 12, 2-3PM EST. Presented by: Noël Perry
