We strongly believe that in order to provide the best logistics management services for our customers, we must continue to expand our expertise and invest in the professional growth of our employees. The more we know about our industry, the more our customers stand to benefit, and the more we will grow as a valuable partner.

Today, we are happy to announce that two of our employees helped us become an even better solutions provider by completing The Certified Transportation Broker (CTB) Program from The Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA).

There are less than 2,400 people in the U.S. who have completed this program, and we are happy to announce that two King team members are now among them:

  1. Joel Rice, Transportation Manager
  2. Cody Happke, Customer Care Specialist

About the CTB program
The rigorous CTB program was created by the TIA to help supply chain companies and their employees “increase the professionalism and integrity of the freight brokerage industry, meet the educational needs of brokers, and expand basic knowledge of the brokerage and transportation industry.”

The CTB program teaches general business principles that include marketing, accounting and finance, and risk management. The program also covers logistics strategy and teaches members to become experts in the fields of:

  • Shipment, claims, fleet, and international traffic management
  • Contracts and pricing of transportation services
  • The regulatory environment of the industry
  • Legal cases and statutes in transportation, including back solicitation, double payment, workers’ compensation, damage claim issues and much more.

A quote from our team

“It’s an honor to be recognized as part of such a small group of industry experts. We realize that this quite an achievement for all of us. We know this will allow us to bring more business intelligence and better strategy to King Solutions and all its customers.”

Moving forward
This achievement allows our team to expand our carrier base, strengthening our service provider network so we can offer clients more options than ever before.

Building carrier partnerships with qualified service providers is a top priority at King. Our team of experts has the ability to design unique supply chain solutions shippers cannot find anywhere else. To find out how your organization can benefit from our employee’s CTB certification, contact us today.
