The Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA), the voice of the $162 billion third-party logistics industry, has granted 46 industry professionals the designation of Certified Transportation Brokers (CTB).

“The CTB designation truly distinguishes brokers in today’s competitive transportation marketplace,” said TIA President and CEO Robert Voltmann. “CTB is the mark of respect for transportation intermediaries. Congratulations to this latest group of Certified Transportation Brokers.”

This program was created in 1986 to significantly increase the professionalism and integrity of property brokers. The CTB program tests the knowledge of participants on brokerage, ethics, contracts, pricing, legal and regulatory requirements, as well as the latest trends in transportation and business management.

Participants must earn at least five candidate points, which are based on professional experience and education, to be eligible to take the examination. The participants must also have at least one year of experience working as a broker. Candidates may earn additional CTB eligibility points if they have completed formal education such as being granted a Bachelor’s or a Master’s degree.

TIA, in addition to sponsoring the examination, also offers an online CTB Home Study Course that lasts for a period of up to 17 weeks. The course, which entails rigorous study, helps to prepare those individuals who are seeking CTB certification to prepare for the examination. More than 1,750 participants have earned the much sought after CTB designation.
