TIA Issues Fraud Task Force Report

TUCSON, Ariz. — The Transportation Intermediaries Association said it has taken a step to reduce fraud and theft-related losses for brokers by issuing a task force report.

The group’s 2014 Framework to Combat Fraud, rolled out April 12 at the annual meeting here, is designed to counter five situations by using best practices identified by other members.

They are cargo theft, financial theft, identity theft, fraud prevention and post-fraud follow-up action.

“This framework presents a compilation of best practices that TIA members and Fraud Task Force participants have used to protect themselves,” said Geoff Turner, who is TIA’s board chairman and CEO of Choptank Transport.

“This resource complements TIA Watchdog, a Web-based forum for the industry to report information on problems to each other,” Turner said.
