Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) is a proud supporter of and advocate for efforts to combat human trafficking. We are honored to have partnered with Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT) in 2021 as a Gold Level Sponsor in support of their mission to educate, equip, empower and mobilize members of the trucking, bus, and energy industries to combat human trafficking.
As part of this partnership, TIA will work hand-in-hand with TAT to provide information, education, tools, and resources that TIA Members and others in the 3PL and transportation industries can use to help identify and stop this heinous crime. TIA will also host a series of webinars throughout the year to provide the industry with valuable training on how they can play a role.
TIA is also honored to be a member of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking (TLAHT) initiative, which is comprised of transportation and travel industry stakeholders working jointly to maximize their collective impact in combating human trafficking.
To date, TLAHT has engaged with hundreds of organizations from across the transportation industry.
The partnership focuses on five key areas and connects transportation stakeholders to available resources on:
- Industry leadership
- Industry training and education
- Policy development
- Public awareness
- Information sharing and analysis
We'll be announcing additional details on our efforts in support of the TLAHT initiative in the coming months.
