Did You Know? Across multiple services, offerings, and platforms, TIA reviews options to provide powerful benefits for your business success. These exclusive opportunities, known as TIA Advantage Programs, range from software bundles to credit and insurance services. While TIA does not endorse these services, it is our duty and responsibility to make them available to the membership to positively impact their business operations and pathways to success. Today, TIA Services is excited to announce two new Advantage Programs to our members this month!
3PL and the Technologies of the Future
While true, no one knows what the future holds. Whether it be APIs, mobile based applications, big data, Artificial Intelligence, etc.; 3PLs will be leading the way with cutting-edge technology. Join the closing panel as we discuss the tools you can expect to emerge that will enhance your relationship with your customers, shippers or carriers.
Thank you to our 2019 Technovators
Industry News and Advocacy
Last week, TIA submitted comments to the U.S. Federal Maritime Commission on its proposed interpretive rule on demurrage/detention charges. The interpretive rule aims to bring clarity to how the agency will determine whether a demurrage charge is “just and reasonable” and proposes criteria the agency would consider when making that determination. For example, FMC would consider whether the charge was assessed while the cargo was actually available, whether the carrier was properly notified that their cargo was ready for pick-up, or whether the port has been transparent about its dispute resolution processes.

TIA is looking to enhance our offerings for members who handle air and ocean freight. If your company does air and/or ocean freight, please take this survey to tell us more about your air and ocean freight business so we may better serve you. By taking this survey, you will help TIA expand our member committees in these areas and develop more resources on these topics so that we can add more value to the industry.
The survey will ask you how much of your revenue comes from airfreight and ocean freight forwarding; what other associations and publications you currently use to get information on air and ocean freight issues; what issues related to air and ocean freight you would like TIA to focus more on; and who your main points of contact for those kinds of freight are. Your answers will be kept confidential.
TIA is seeking young professionals to join our Young Executives Committee. Historically, the Young Executives Committee exclusively held an annual lunch event at the April Conference, and no formal activities ensued until the next year. But with the increasing number of young professionals joining the 3PL industry, the moment is ripe to formalize the committee and provide our members with a platform for networking and information sharing with the next generation of leaders within TIA.
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.
