Approval Requirements and General Information for Freight TSPs
How to Become a GSA approved Freight TSP
Transportation Service Providers (TSPs) that would like to become a GSA approved Freight TSP must complete an approval application packet, submit the completed packet to the Freight Management Branch, and be approved to participate in the Freight Management Branch’s freight program.
Upon review and approval by the Freight Management Branch, a TSP will be eligible to submit rate offers for the shipment of freight during identified open window filing periods. TSPs will also be eligible to provide one-time-only (OTO)/SPOT shipment quotations, when they are requested by federal agencies or other eligible organizations.

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 Transportation Service Provider (TSP) meeting those approval requirements.
Approved fright TSPs are required to adhere to all terms and conditions set forth in the STOS. The STOS also 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.
