Alexandria, VA (July 16, 2019) – Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) has granted 37 logistics professionals the designation of Certified Transportation Brokers (CTB).

In addition to sponsoring the examination, TIA offers a 12-week CTB Online Study Course. The course entails rigorous study for individuals preparing for the CTB examination.
