TIA Code of Ethics

As a condition of membership, all TIA members are required to sign a strict, national Code of Ethics. The Ethics Committee of TIA arbitrates and ensures that members adhere to the Code of Ethics. These articles have been adopted by the Transportation Intermediaries Association to promote and maintain high standards of professional service and ethical business conduct among its members.

  • A member shall deal fairly with customers, colleagues, fellow members, and the general public.
  • A member shall conduct his or her professional life in accordance with the interests of TIA, the third party transportation services industry, and the general transportation public.
  • A member shall adhere to honesty and integrity and to generally accepted principles of professional conduct.
  • A member shall not engage in any practice, which tends to corrupt the integrity of TIA, the third party transportation services industry, or process of government.
  • A member shall make proper, just, and prompt payment for all contractual obligations.
  • A member shall abide by all lawful agreements to which he or she is a party, including all agreements with shippers, carriers, and other transportation intermediaries.
  • A member shall compete vigorously - but not unfairly - with other members.
  • If a member has evidence that another member has been guilty of unethical, illegal, or unfair practices, including those in violation of this Code, the member shall present information promptly to TIA.
