The transportation and logistics industry is what knits together the U.S. and global economies. Each and every day, the U.S. transportation system alone moves a daily average of 54 million tons of freight valued at nearly $48 billion. Additionally, as foreign trade becomes increasingly ubiquitous, domestic and international shippers alike face pressure to keep pace among all modes. With international trade tonnage forecast to grow at a rate of 3.4 percent per year until 2040, those strains appear to be here to stay. Rising fuel costs, deteriorating infrastructure and the quest to lower carbon emissions also are real challenges to the transportation and logistics industry. However, bright spots such as developing markets and new supply chain information technologies ensure a promising future ahead. When combined with the advent of high-speed rail and increased airline efficiencies, it is clear this already huge market is primed to become even larger.
