TIA’s CTB Courses Recommended by ACE for Supply Chain Management Degree

Alexandria, VA (November 20, 2023) — The Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA), the premier organization for third-party logistics professionals, is proud to announce that the American Council on Education (ACE) has recommended the Certified Transportation Broker (CTB) course for 6 undergraduate semester hours under the following course topics: Business Fundamentals and Transportation Delivery Systems. This significant recognition highlights the quality and value of TIA’s educational offerings for the transportation industry.

“While we know that our CTB course is best in class, it is incredibly rewarding to have the American Council on Education recognize the top caliber CTB designation as well. We could not be more pleased and excited to work with ACE on this credit recommendation effort,” said TIA President & CEO Anne Reinke.

ACE, a prominent membership organization, plays a pivotal role in shaping effective public policy and fostering innovation and high-quality practices in higher education. With a diverse membership of over 1,700 colleges and universities, ACE represents all types of degree-granting institutions in the United States.

“The CTB designation has historically been recognized within the industry as the highest professional certification among 3PL’s, however achieving this undergraduate credit recommendation will provide additional credibility to the certification.  Offering students the opportunity to put their hard work towards Supply Chain Management programs to supplement their current studies with specific subject matter related to the 3PL industry. This will also offer value and appeal to employers looking to hire interns and recent graduates in the field of study,” said TIA CTB Committee Chair Mark Fiorini, CTB.
