Industry News and Advocacy

Announced at the TIA Capital Ideas Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, FreightWaves and the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) are pleased to offer FreightWaves’ proprietary SONAR dashboard to TIA members.

Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) released the highly anticipated report outlining “Creating a Win-Win-Win Business Relationship” between the motor carrier, the shipper and the 3PL.

“There has been a fundamental shift in the past few years on shippers, motor carriers and 3PLs seeking to provide better service to each other. This report is a great first step on identifying some key insights into what these three parties are looking for to make a successful relationship,” stated Chris Burroughs, TIA’s Vice President of Government Affairs and staff liaison for the Shipper Committee and Council.

The Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) honored two long-time members for their exceptional contributions to the logistics industry and TIA during the 2019 TIA Capital Ideas Conference and Exhibition, held April 10-13, 2019 in Orlando, FL.

The Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) released the latest version of their landmark framework, the TIA Carrier Selection Framework. The TIA Carrier Selection Framework assists TIA members with industry guidance when selecting motor carriers to haul your customers freight.

“TIA is a member-driven organization, and we are proud to have a strong Board of Directors dedicated to the future of the industry and TIA. We are very excited to have business owners and leaders willing to volunteer their time for the betterment of the industry,” said Bob Voltmann, TIA President and CEO.
