Each year there are approximately 40 tons of freight moved for everyone of us in the United States. The US DOT has at this point finally gotten around to developing a national plan focused on moving freight in this country. The bill to create a national freight strategic planning office within the DOT is finally moving forward after almost 2 years in the planning stages. The goal of this planning office will be to move this country towards a more efficient freight network, reducing traffic congestion, environmental impacts and shipping costs with the overall goal to increase this countries exports.
This council will be chaired by the US DOT and include DOT leadership from highways, rail, ports and airports and economic and policy experts. The freight and logistics industries, consumers and other stakeholders will also play an advisory role, and states will be asked to offer proposals for improving the freight system in their region. The goal of this council is to provide the road map our nation needs to stay competitive and expand our trade economy.
