TIA Against Double Brokering

March 22, 2024


Anyone in the freight industry knows that fraudulence and double brokering are huge issues.  While there’ll always be those who try to get one over on people, that doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to combat it.  Despite this apparently being a tall order for some legislators in the country, logistics professionals have been banding together since time immemorial to do anything they can to mitigate this issue in the industry.  As of this month, a step in the right direction is being made, by the TIA against double brokering. 

About a week ago, on March 11, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued a statement saying that it had accepted the Transportation Intermediaries Association’s (TIA) 2023 Petition for Rulemaking to review the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) rule, which would require new freight brokers/forwarders to have at least three years of experience, or demonstrate required knowledge of the freight industry.  According to the TIA, the FMCSA has neglected to address many of the complaints levied at them by people and companies in the freight industry regarding rampant fraudulence, making this a significant victory for the TIA. 

While the war isn’t over yet, a long battle has just ended.  TIA says that they will keep members notified on all future developments on this issue.  In the meantime, freight brokers must do whatever they can to combat illegal double brokering.  As an industry, we can work together with the TIA against double brokering to finally end this blight on transportation.
