TIA members that are Performance Certified are dedicated to the highest level of ethics and adopt strict best practices by adhering to the Performance Certified Program rules. Avalon Risk Management, Inc. supports that commitment by partnering with TIA to offer the increased surety levels.


The Performance Certified program offers a competitive advantage to transportation brokers by providing a guarantee of freight payment to carriers, shippers and other third-party logistics providers in excess of the $10,000 bond required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to conduct business. This bond is not intended to pay cargo claims.
