Industry News and Advocacy

In response to several requests and feedback from TIA Members about the impending Dec. 16, 2019 deadline, which requires motor carriers currently utilizing an Automatic On-Board Recording Device or AOBRD to switch to an Electronic Logging Device (ELD), TIA has released a guidance document to assist Members in educating their shipper customers, motor carrier customers and employees.

The mandate requires that the ELD be installed on the engine of the commercial motor vehicle and likely would require some time to properly get the ELD installed. Motor carriers should consider not delaying installing the ELD prior to the mandatory date of December 16, 2019.

The guidance document can be downloaded from the TIA Highway Logistics Conference webpage. Please feel free to add your logo to the document and distribute to your industry associates.

Please take a few minutes to review the list of TIA Member Candidates for the month of August. If you have any information about why a Candidate should not be accepted into membership, please contact TIA immediately. Opposition or inquiries must be submitted in writing. A copy of the inquiry will be sent to the Candidate.

Here's something that might surprise you: Spot market truckload volumes were 7% higher in the first six months of 2019 than they were in the first half of 2018, according to the DAT Truckload Volume Index. The index reflects the change in the actual number of loads moved each month, based on contributions to DAT RateView. But for many trucking companies, this hasn't felt like an "up" year.

TIA members are at the forefront of digitization of the supply chain, and are constantly challenged to keep ahead of changing technologies to build effective relationships with their customers and carriers.  The 3PL industry is made up of companies of all sizes, all of whom can relate to concerns about cybersecurity. Please help TIA understand how you are protecting your business from this threat, so that the Association can develop new tools and resources to help you and to help protect the industry.

Full trucking automation is 15 or more years off so, why should brokers worry about it now? Noël Perry explains in this webinar that many parts of the industry are already experiencing revolutionary development that may profoundly change everything well before the 15-year estimate. Moreover, he will make the case that the brokers’ role will be affected at least as much as the most progressive carrier.
