The US DOT is soliciting ideas and feedback about elements of the national freight policy as outlined in MAP-21.
A key component of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) is its focus on developing coordinated national freight policies. The purpose of National Online Dialogue on Freight Policy (September 13, 2012 to September 23, 2012) is to provide the United States Department of Transportation’s partners and stakeholders the opportunity to discuss and provide suggestions on considerations that should be given in the implementation of MAP-21. The dialogue will cover three areas: (1) Measuring the condition and performance of the freight system; (2) State freight planning; and (3) Elements of a national freight strategic plan.
