TIA Industry Professionals Advising the FMCSA

Darin Day, General Counsel at Tucker Company Worldwide, has replaced Tucker’s CEO, Jeff Tucker, as TIA’s only Broker Representative on the Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee (MCSAC). Darin recently spoke about the importance of industry professionals advising the FMCSA.

“This is the one place…the most effective place…where the industry can have an impact on the rules that are being proposed by the FMCSA and the way that the CSA program is developing,” he said.

Darin’s presence on the TIA Committee helps to bring some balance to the table in Washington – the perspective of a 3PL Provider who is also a TIA member – which enables all parties involved to accomplish their respective goals.

“We all care about safety,” he continued. “Everybody wants as few accidents, incidents, deaths of course, on the highways as possible. But at the same time, the whole point of the transportation industry is to get important goods to people on time, efficiently, and in a way that doesn’t slow down commerce.”
