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 has been passed 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 in the House of Representatives to co-sponsor and support H.R 6826.

Write to your elected leaders today!

Brokers with less than $100m in sales are turning to AscendTMS in droves to digitize their brokerages, lower their costs, and increase their profit margins. 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.

Education

Is your Sales Team still using features and benefits based sales model? If so, they are losing ground to your competitors. Training and coaching that never teaches how the buyer makes a decision, and how a salesperson needs to work within these parameters, will come up short in today's 3PL marketplace. This seminar uses research that teaches how a shipper buys 3PL services, what process they expect from a professional salesperson, and how to incorporate a question-based sales approach over the phone. Register now for How Role-Plays Increase Both Management & Performance!, which will take place on July 12, 14, 19, & 21.

 

 

The meaning of ethics can be hard to pin down and harder still to define with precision. Developed by Dr. John Drea, TIA's Ethics in Transportation Brokerage Course is the only course focused specifically on current ethical issues impacting 3PLs.

 

 

TIA Members have grown their businesses from small start-ups to mulit-billion-dollar companies. These are the men and women who invented the 3PL industry and are the ones who wrote this Independent Contractor Course. Take advantage of their 30+ years of 3PL experience and knowledge.
