Maintaining and improving an effective and efficient transportation infrastructure for the movement of people and freight continues to be important in today’s global marketplace. This is of greater importance given the increased demand for domestic oil, gas, and agricultural production; urban goods movement; international supply chains; and logistics.
The freight transportation system in the United States is the engine that drives the nation’s economic competitiveness. Roads, railroads, the inland waterway system, seaports, pipelines, and airports all contribute to growth economically. These systems make agricultural and natural resources, population and employment centers, and international gateways more accessible to the movers of freight and to the general population.
