TIA Daily COVID-19 Update: May 27th

As TIA continues to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and it’s impact on the 3PL and transportation industries, here is your Daily Update for May 27. As a reminder, you can find all the latest information, resources, guidance, and news from TIA’s .

The Government Affairs team recently recorded the latest  on the little unknown regulation 49 CFR 371.3 that is making all the noise in Washington, DC right now. TIA’s Vice President of Government Affairs Chris Burroughs examines CFR 371.3 and the original intent of the regulation and whether or not a broker can legally contract out of it, because of NDAs they are required to sign by their shipper customers. A link to the podcast will be emailed to TIA Members towards the end of the week, so keep an eye on your inbox!



Reminder to join us tomorrow at 12:00 PM ET for the latest installment of TIA’s  series – Generating Business and Protecting the Brand in a COVID Economy. This webinar will help you to navigate the new COVID economy, reshape your business approach, and leverage your sales and marketing to ultimately grow share of customers and generate new business. Brian Everett, CEO of the , will share key sales and marketing metrics and best practices that have been used successfully by other intermediaries during these uncertain times. !



Join TIA and  tomorrow at 2:00 PM ET for the latest  – Transportation Systems, Strategy & Selection – featuring a conversation on strategy and selection of a Transportation Management System (TMS) that’s right for you. A quality TMS can reduce costs, but many brokers don’t take advantage or know which TMS works best for their business. The right TMS can improve efficiencies, accuracy, execution, reduce spending, and improve workflow. !


Another good day marked an important milestone for the U.S. The significant reduction in week-over-week deaths brought us more than fifty percent below our peak in deaths in early April. This good news comes despite California’s increase in cases and Rhode Island’s increases in deaths. Such exceptions will continue given the variations in the virus’ trends and our measurement of the same.

Today will be another important day it being the second day after a weekend/holiday pause when the authorities often play catchup. The numbers will probably be up. We will see by how much. Note that yesterday was up over Monday, but well below the previous Tuesday. We hope for that today.

We’ll be back on tomorrow with COVID-19 updates and information that came through overnight.
