Beyond Traffic 2045 National Freight Strategy Framework

About this Document

The Beyond Traffic 2045 National Freight Strategy Framework is intended to reflect on the progress made to address freight challenges over the last eight years and to provide thoughts on the future of freight and the role of the Federal Government with regard to freight policy.  It will be the responsibility of the next Administrations to continue to implement the provisions of the FAST Act and to advocate for multimodal freight policies and programs that improve the safety, efficiency, and condition of our freight system.  This document is intended as a reflection on the lessons learned by the Obama Administration with regard to freight policy over the last eight years as well as suggestions about the future direction of freight policies that this Administration believes should be considered going forward.
