Technology, Science & Selling: Forecasting the Future of the 3PL Sales Environment
Artificial intelligence, BOTS, data analytics, cloud computing, social media, software specialization, and outsourced operations teams are now the norm in the 3PL world. However, what happens when these tools are coupled with scientific behavior research in the sales realm? This session, presented by Dr. Jim Kenny, will discuss how the convergence of technology and behavioral science are completely reshaping the professional sales process, salesforce design, training, coaching, recruiting, and sales management. Register today!

Industry News and Advocacy
TIA is seeking to better understand the financial impacts of double-brokering on the 3PL industry and specifically, TIA Members.
TIA uses the term “double brokering” in the sense of illegal brokerage activities. For example, a TIA Member hires a motor carrier to haul their customers’ freight; unbeknownst to the TIA Member, the load is then re-brokered or “double brokered” to another carrier. The carrier could have brokerage authority or not, but the contract clearly stated that the relationship was that of a broker and a carrier.
Any information you provide will directly contribute to the advocacy efforts of the TIA Government Affairs Team as we work toward ending this unlawful brokerage activity within the industry. All responses are anonymous and confidential. If double-brokering is an issue affecting your business, please take this brief survey.
Thank you for your time and support!
If you have any questions, please contact the TIA Education Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have just updated the Member Resource Library, with a new section devoted exclusively to whitepapers TIA has produced over the years. These resources are designed to help our members gain a better understanding of issues, trends, and developments in the industry as they navigate an increasingly crowded 3PL marketplace. The Member Resource Library also includes a collection of guidelines and frameworks, contracts, legal cases, and other resources to provide TIA Members with a knowledge bank for 3PL success.
