TEANA Growth Expands Membership’s Focus and Brings a Name Change
November 11, 2011 -- Giving thought to “What’s in a Name?,” the leading group in the expedite industry, fueled by increasing membership growth, is rebranding itself and begins with a name change.
TEANA, originally formed in 2003 as The Expedite Alliance of North America, has seen its membership rise to more than 92 companies over eight years. As the scope of the organization has broadened, TEANA’s board of directors decided at its 2011 Annual Meeting that the organization would best benefit from formally branding itself as an Association. The TEANA acronym stays the same, but now stands for The Expedite Association of North America.
TEANA is the only organization representing providers of expedited trucking in the North American market. Defining itself now as an association, TEANA leaders vow to continue the efforts started as an alliance, which had a strong focus on collaborative competition. TEANA also continues to include other core goals like providing a voice for expeditor's within government and regulatory organizations, expanding member benefits and upholding best in class industry standards.
“We are extremely excited with this name change. It better suits the mission of the organization and it helps define our goals going forward,” said TEANA President, John Elliott, and President of Load One Transportation and Logistics.
TEANA members commit to quality standards and a strict code of ethics. The association is comprised of expediters varying in size and geographic service areas across North America. Members work together in the spirit of cooperative competition, improving standards and quality of service of expedited transportation within the general transportation market segment.
“TEANA’s committment to develop and drive our members to exhibit best in class performance is the next level of the maturation for our association,” said TEANA Vice President Steve Norman, VP of Universal Traffic Service. “Now more than ever, customers should place the highest confidence in selecting a TEANA member as their expedite provider for a best in class experience.”
Members share resources and experiences to enhance service performance and capacity to shippers and 3PL’s. The association’s annual meeting, to be held in New Orleans in July 2012, is one example of a TEANA event where attendees experience excellence, leadership and the benefits of membership.
