Our Executive VP, Bob Freed, took part in the TIA Policy Forum in Washington DC on June 6 and 7th.   The goal was to seek support for the FAA Reauthorization Act which would create a National Hiring Standard for safe drivers and a clear methodology for 3PL’s and Forwarders to follow.  Currently there is no clear-cut safety standard.
