Other Membership Benefits

Association benefits far outweigh membership costs given TIA's ability to maximize the resources of its many members.

To reduce your expenses

  • FREIGHT, TIA  is  happy  to  announce  a  partnership  with  Logistics Management, who contracts with national carriers for such a volume of freight then passes savings on to you. You  will  receive  a  substantial  discount  on  all  inbound,  outbound,  or  3rd Party billed shipments  where  your  company  pays  the  freight  charges.  There  are  no  minimum requirements.  In  addition,  LMI  fuel  surcharges  are  65%  lower  than  most  freight companies resulting in even greater savings. TIA can offer unmatched discounts and money-saving opportunities to tortilla industry companies. Once a member, you will save on valuable information, documents and services, such as:

  • Equipment Leasing & Financing, TIA  Members  can  free   up  their cash  by  leasing instead of buying equipment, and our  Leasing Partners have agreed to a combination of reduced fees, lower rates, and easier quicker approvals on leases from $5K to $5M.

  • Truck & vehicle rental, when a TIA member needs additional trucks for a large order, or to fill in for a vehicle that is   undergoing   repairs,   our  T IA   Partnership   with  Budget  Truck  &  Car  Rental  will provide   significant  savings  on  all  trucks  from  minivans to 25' cargo trucks.  Discounts also apply to car rental for business or vacation travel.

  • Save on Corrugated Boxes, we understand that the cost of corrugated boxes is one of the important costs of running your operation. So TIA has partnered with Temple Inland, one of the country's leading providers of corrugated boxes (please see article in the previous issue of TIA Newsletter) . How much can they save you? It depends on a lot of factors, just like with insurance quotes so please download it from the TIA website and print it then fax it. Or just call Mike at (804) 862-8209
