APRIL 7, 2020 – ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA – Transportation Intermediaries Associations (TIA), the largest association representing third-party logistics companies, released today an updated version of the association’s Framework to Combat Fraud. This framework is an essential tool for TIA Members to stay one-step-ahead of the criminals as the magnitude, volume, and sophistication of fraud continues to evolve.

“Unfortunately, during times of crisis fraudulent activity increases,” said TIA Fraud Framework Working Group Chairman Mike Nervick, CEO of Sleek Fleet, LLC. “We need to work together to mitigate unnecessary risk.”

In the 2020 Update, the TIA Fraud Framework Working Group focused on updating the latest information available on the trending and emerging areas on fraud. Additionally, the 2020 Update added two new sections on internal theft and cybersecurity that were not originally included in the 2014 original release.

“TIA is proud of the latest update to the Framework to Combat Fraud. The additions of internal theft and cybersecurity were much needed, as these areas have been a major concern for our members over the past few years. I appreciate all the hard work of the Working Group, and Chairman Nervick continuing to lead the effort on updating this framework which provides our membership with the latest information and findings,” stated TIA Vice President of Government Affairs Chris Burroughs.

TIA is the premier organization for third-party logistics professionals in North America and abroad. Membership at TIA adds value to your business and provides resources for growth.
