On Aug. 12, 2019, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that would amend CBP regulations to require customs brokers to collect certain information from importers to enable the customs brokers to verify the identity of importers.
This week the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) released the much-anticipated notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) outlining proposed changes to the hours-of-service (HOS) rules and regulations on commercial motor vehicle drivers.
TIA has partnered with the Addiction Policy Forum, a national nonprofit, to address substance use disorders in the workplace. The partnership will allow you and your employees a confidential, app-based counseling service – free of charge. We are passionate about beginning work on this initiative to help our members help employees in need.
The workshop will feature guest speakers from the industry well versed in modern-day transportation, logistics and regulatory matters. The seminar is geared towards all levels from entry-level to senior executive looking to gain an overall view of the industry. It is also a good refresher course for middle and senior management.
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.

Moreover, he will make the case that the brokers’ role will be affected at least as much as the most progressive carrier.
