Our Good Nation's Freight System

Did you know our freight system directly supports 44 million jobs and 55 million tons of goods are moved over our highways, local road, railways, waterways, and pipelines which are all linked to our seaports and airports, as well?
What are we doing to take care of
our nation's freight system?

Luckily, the U.S. Department of Transportation has released a draft for a National Freight Strategic Plan and is available for comments and opinions.

Scarbrough is a proud supporter of NASCO, and we thank you for getting the word out to protect all the components that make up our nation's freight system.
