Sue Spero owner of Carrier Services of TN, Inc. traveled to Capitol Hill in June with the TIA, Transportation Intermediaries Association. The purpose of the trip was to advocate two bills, H.R. 1120 and S. 1454, that create a National Hiring Standard for Motor Carriers.

Brokers, Shippers, and freight forwarders are at risk every day of baseless lawsuits for negligent selection of carriers. . H.R. 1120 and S. 1454 are the result of TIA members and its advocacy professionals working hard to bring Congress’s attention to this critical issue.

Sue was proud to be a part of over 55 members meeting with 116 congressional representatives to help get the attention of Congress, teach them about our industry, and encourage them to work with us on these bills and other priorities.
Sue believes no company should be at risk of a lawsuit because of flawed government programs.
