DISCOVER: TIA offers subscribers the opportunity to learn more about Logistics Plus' Ukraine relief efforts. Logistics Plus had 50 of their own employees there and are now providing relief to them and other refugees. You can access the Logistics Plus Ukraine relief here.

TIA Call to Action: TIA Members, as you know over the last year and a half we have been working diligently on your behalf to include DOT licensed property brokers in the C-TPAT program, a public/private partnership focused on hardening the supply chain. Department of Homeland Security’s decision more than 10 years ago to exclude you from C-TPAT has cost you all countless business opportunities.

We have legislation to start to fix this. S.2322 in the Senate and H.R. 6826 in the House of Representatives will allow 10 TIA members to be included in this program through a pilot program. This starts the process of opening up C-TPAT to any 3PL who would like to join.

Use this link, with a pre-written note, to call on your elected leaders to co-sponsor and support S.2322 and H.R 6826.

Write to your elected leaders today!

The key for these brokers, representing over 97% of all active brokerages, according to CEO Tim Higham, is that they’re all eager to access the newly available digital shipper freight and digital carrier capacity being made available – which just isn’t available in most legacy TMS systems.

A common complaint among brokerage owners is that their employees do not have enough of a sense of urgency. There are many possible reasons for this problem, but two of the most common are poorly defined roles and poorly designed and managed compensation plans. This seminar will look at the different organization models in use by brokers that help improve role clarity and the various pros and cons of each for different situations. It will also review the different compensation approaches (there are far more options than just a straight commission plan!) and give your ideas for different methods you can use to increase the sense of urgency among your staff, and drive more profits to your bottom line.

SESSION DATES: 

April 26 & 28, May 3 & 5 from 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET
