Trump administration rolls out ‘first-ever’ National Freight Strategic Plan

On Thursday, the U. S. Department of Transportation (DOT) made history by debuting a national plan to improve the nation’s freight transportation system.

The National Freight Strategic Plan (NFSP), which was unveiled on September 3, is intended to boost the U. S. economy by streamlining the national multimodal freight system by investing in infrastructure, the workforce, and cutting regulations.

“The Department is unveiling the first-ever National Freight Strategic Plan so that the U. S. can maintain our competitive edge across major industries like agriculture, manufacturing, energy production and E-commerce,” said U. S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.
