General TSP Information

The program’s foundation is GSA’s Standard Tender of Services (STOS), which establishes a uniform basis for buying freight transportation. Participation in the general program is open to any TSP meeting those approval requirements.
Approved freight TSPs are required to adhere to all terms and conditions set forth in the STOS, which contains the Freight TSP Approval Requirements found in the corresponding document below.
See the listing of approved TSPs, brokers, freight forwarders, shipper agents, and inter-modal marketing companies who are industry participants, approved by GSA to participate in its Freight Management Program. For each participant, the Standard Carrier Alpha Code is listed first, then its name.
