Summary: Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) is the professional organization of the $167 billion third-party logistics industry. Transportation intermediaries, or third-party logistics companies (3PL), act as the facilitators to arrange the efficient and economical movement of goods between cargo ships, airplanes, trucks, rail, warehouses, and store shelves. TIA member companies serve tens of thousands of shippers and play a key role in domestic and international commerce.

TIA represents over 1,700 member companies. Over 70 percent of these member companies are small, family-owned businesses. TIA is the only organization representing transportation intermediaries to shippers, carriers, government officials and international organizations and is the U.S. member of the International Federation of Freight Forwarder Association (FIATA).

Traditionally, transportation intermediaries have been primarily non-asset based companies who arrange logistics for shippers often utilizing sophisticated software and their extensive expertise in the transportation industry. Today, many also invest in assets such as trucks, aircraft, warehouses, and consolidation centers so that they can offer a more comprehensive range of services.

Transportation intermediaries must be federally licensed to operate in the United States. Companies involved in the trucking industry are licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) of the United States Department of Transportation as either brokers or freight forwarders. Transportation intermediaries involved in ocean transportation are licensed by the Federal Maritime Commission to operate as either a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) or freight forwarder. Transportation intermediaries involved in airfreight must register as an indirect air carrier with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). No license or authority is required to operate as an Intermodal marketing company.

TIA members adhere to the only mandatory Code of Ethics in the transportation industry. Members have always been committed to the highest level of professionalism by adhering to this Code. In addition, TIA members have adopted strict best practices by participating in the Performance Certified Program. Now the leaders in the industry have signed up for another level of commitment to their customers. Through the Performance Certified Program, TIA members put money behind that commitment. Shippers, carriers, and other 3PLs doing business with the Performance Certified members have their payments protected.
