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!
