We have published a few posts already outlining how some carriers have started to raise freight rates to build up neglected infrastructure after a couple of years of economic downturn. This promises to be a hot topic in this years elections as well. Freight carriers of all kinds have been lobbying hard for increased work on our national transportation system, including highways and bridges. The ad below from Norfolk Southern illustrates the point that rail freight largely builds its own infrastructure, the ad is also being used to bring some focus to the nation stage for those infrastructure improvements everywhere.
As your freight experts, Freight Management Logistics is closely watching the lobbying effort and responses to it to be able to properly advise our freight customers on their best methods of transportation.
