As part of TIA’s continuing efforts to build and foster strong relationships between TIA Members and shippers, the TIA Shipper Committee (compromised of 3PL members) and the TIA Shipper Council (compromised of shipper professionals) is proud to release this latest resource dedicated to improving the relationships between shippers, 3PLs, and motor carriers.
The Great Expectations resource is a complete examination of emerging technology expectations of shippers, 3PLs and motor carriers for conducting business. All are investing more time and resources in new technology to increase visibility, business connectivity and transparency. In the final analysis, the value of personal relationships has not diminished, even though new technologies have been entering the supply chain.
