TIA Member Recognition
TIA Samaritan Award
The Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) 3PL Samaritan
Award recognizes a member for exceptional service and assistance to
others in need. The recognized service or assistance can take any
form, from volunteering logistical support to providing manpower,
resources, or financial support to others in need; sponsoring sporting
events; providing scholarships; hiring disabled people; or other
areas. The purpose of the award is to recognize the good works in
which the 3PL industry engages by highlighting a specific 3PL
Samaritan effort each year.
