Is it Time Our Infrastructure is Refurbished?

Trucking Expansion is Vital to our Country's Economy

Our trucking companies are vital to us all, here in America, Canada, and Mexico. When you see the numbers, as reported on Become, you know our trucking industry is part of what is making America prosper. The numbers the trucking industry delivers should motivate us all to embrace this industry with support.

  • "70% of all domestic freight – tipping the scales at nearly 11 billion tons – is moved by trucks"
  • "More than $700 billion in annual revenue is generated by the trucking industry"
  • "Over 7.5 million people have jobs related to trucking, including 3.5 million truck drivers"
  • "Roughly 15.5 million trucks operate within the states"
  • "Trucking accounts for nearly 70% of trade between the U.S. and Mexico (and nearly 60% of trade with Canada)"
  • "More than 90% of trucking businesses are considered small companies, with fewer than 6 trucks"

Our Deteriorating Infrastructure is in Need of Refurbishing

One of the top five roadblocks with our trucking industry today, as listed in the Become article, is the condition of our country's road, highways, bridges, and tunnels. To say it exactly, we have "crumbling bridges, roads, and tunnels." 

It is imperative to our trucking industry that we have "a safe and reliable infrastructure" to run "a successful trucking company." Of course, the proposed infrastructure spending plan comes with a cost. Maybe we all have to help through increases at the pump. Let's not wait for the alternative to occur, when fewer trucks lead to high demand and higher costs.

On GOVERNING, you can learn more about ideas for fixing our nation's infrastructure. We all travel the same roads, highways, bridges, and tunnels. We all need to support the improvement of our country's infrastructure. Although we have a long road ahead of us, with today's technology and equipment, it's only a matter of time before we see America's infrastructure refurbishment.
