"I've been in freight marketing for more than a decade and I've never felt more at home than while at a TMSA conference. Marketing in this industry can be a very lonely position but the TMSA provides community and insight that emphasizes collaboration over competition. If you're looking for personal growth and opportunities to learn from colleagues within the freight world, you need to become involved with the TMSA."

"We have been a Corporate member of TMSA for several years now. TMSA has and continues to bring value in the areas of both education and networking. Education through TMSA is two-fold. First, the association offers regular opportunities to learn through structured events. Second, education comes through a great connection to other TMSA members in like-positions who are willing to discuss and share what we are all doing to win. The networking opportunities, both virtual and in-person, have provided valuable contacts with both vendors and industry partners that enable us to build and deploy "best practices" in our sales and marketing efforts."

"The members of TMSA are unmatched in enthusiasm and willingness to share experiences to elevate transportation and logistics.

Our corporate membership provides access and opportunities for growth and we encourage our team members to leverage all that TMSA has to offer via events, webinars and mentors."

"I’ve spent my career generating revenue in the logistics space, and I’ve always thought the salespeople were the tip of the rev gen spear. When I joined the TMSA, I was exposed to a multitude of practitioners, people and organizations, hyper-focused on marketing and sales methodologies specific to rev gen in the transportation, logistics and supply chain space. By studying best practices and engaging on one-to-one conversations with other peer members of the TMSA, I came to the realization that the rev gen hero isn’t only the sales person, but each of the commercial team members surrounding them, in marketing, learning and development, customer success, sales support and operations that together execute a successful rev gen strategy. How we invest and track our sales and marketing dollars, how we execute new strategies and the level of return we’re getting back on our sales and marketing investments has been transformed through our relationship with the TMSA and its members."
