Specialized Transport Taking Part in USDOT Effort to Identify Critical Freight Routes

-SC&RA staff and members are responding to the US Department of Transportation’s call for breakbulk cargo owners, carriers and other stakeholders to help identify which corridors and facilities should be deemed critical to the multimodal transport of freight across the US. The DOT has published a request to solicit written input from the public on what should be included in the project. The comment period closes June 11.  Vice President of Transportation Chris Smith says that the timing of the DOT effort is important. “This is a big part of our advocacy strategy. We are working with members in every state to make the OS/OW case to freight planners, using our resources, like the SC&RF report, “Public Benefits and Economic Dependency On The Crane, Rigging And Specialized Transport Industry,” our own UPT reporting (Uniform Permit Transport), etc.,” he said. Smith is gathering feedback that will support heavy haul’s position in this process. Questions? Contact Chris Smith.
