The TIA welcomes all members of the transportation community – brokers, shippers, carriers, insurance professionals, factors, freight payment and audit professionals, and attorneys. 

The topics covered in this course are just as important for all transportation professionals to know and understand as it is for brokers. 

Topics include:

  • Vicarious Liability: the effects of the 2015 FAST Act and recent court cases that help reduce the exposure to vicarious liability for highway accidents.

  • Liability for freight charges and exposure to having to pay freight charges twice.

  • Minimizing financial risks of loss of discount and late payment penalties.

  • The ways a broker can be held liable for cargo claims.

  • The provisions of MAP-21 and how it affects brokers, carriers and shippers.

  • How to comply with the regulations governing food shipments.

  • Exposures to financial risk unique to California operations.

  • Loss and Damage Claims: the basics of both pursuing AND defending claims and the effect the regulations under FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) will have on claims.

  • Cargo Liability Insurance: what it is ... and what it isn't.

  • The insurance policies a broker should have. 

  • Contracts: an overview of contracts between brokers, carriers and shippers, including crucial negotiation and drafting issues. 

  • Insurance coverage: additional insured’s, waiver of subrogation, and limitations of liability.

  • The importance of harmonizing the provisions of a broker’s contracts with carriers with the provisions of the broker’s contracts with shippers.
