Industry News and Advocacy
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.
TIA has been contacted by a number of members who would be interested in learning more about Drayage. As TIA has many members who can act as subject matter experts around this topic, TIA staff wanted to reach out to the larger membership to get their feedback before starting to build course content.
Please provide your feedback here.
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.
