TIA Enhances Education Programming with SYNC Training

[Alexandria, Va., Jan. 9, 2024] — The Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) – the only organization exclusively representing transportation intermediaries of all disciplines doing business in domestic and international commerce – is excited to announce a collaboration with Metafora’s SYNC Logistics Training to enhance TIA’s education programs, New Broker Certification and New Employee Orientation, by adding live simulations for students.


With the addition of SYNC Training’s live simulations, students now have the opportunity to implement what they are learning in a practical way without worry prior to reaching out to potential clients, customers, and drivers.


“TIA’s Research and Education arm is always on the hunt for the best instruction so that our members can learn how best to operate and grow their businesses,” said Anne Reinke, president & CEO of TIA. “We are delighted to have added Sync Logistics Training to our team of world-class instructors.  Sync will provide practical knowledge and real-life examples of how best to work with carriers, shippers and all freight stakeholders.”


Students will have access to the SYNC training platform via TIA’s Learning Management System, which will improve the overall learning experience for each student to help ensure they are prepared to start scaling their business after graduation from the course.


The program also corresponds and works in conjunction with best-in-class asynchronous learning modules designed by industry experts, industry leading coaches that offer live training on a weekly basis on a myriad of topics pertinent to new brokers, as well as proven training delivery methods by TIA Education staff that helps to ensure students have the skills they need to be successful within the brokerage industry upon completion of the course.


“We are excited to partner with TIA to add additional value to their already strong training by providing some of our scenario-based training,” said Ryan Schreiber, vice president of Growth & Industry at Metafora. “The scenario-based training that Sync offers helps brokers practice the skills they learn in training in a low friction environment and accelerates their ramp.
