Alexandria, VA – Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA), the voice of the third-party logistics industry, attended a signing ceremony at the Pentagon to affirm their commitment to the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).

TIA will coordinate with leading freight brokers and 3PLs from around the country to display its continued dedication to our nation’s heroes and to publicly affirm that members of the ESGR are ready to bolster the third-party logistics’ workforce.

The ESGR Signing Ceremony is an annual event that will take place the day before Wreaths Across America Day.

TIA continues their efforts to facilitate hiring veterans since their successful Hiring Veterans Initiative led to the hiring of over 100 returning veterans. TIA has worked with the Paralyzed Veterans of America and Troops to Transportation Logistics (T2TL) to interface between returning veterans and TIA members looking to hire quality people.
