Emil Frankel, Director of Transportation Policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center posted a blog entry on the National Journal’s Expert Transportation blog.
The topic of the blog discussion was the debate about the role of truck transportation in moving freight. Secretary Ray LaHood was recently accused of wanting to take trucks off the road. This week’s blog question asked specifically, “what is in trucking’s future?”
Check out Emil’s entry and other responses here. Emil makes the point that the debate should not be about preferring one mode over another, but rather achieving a balanced intermodal freight transportation system where investment of limited resources lead to the most cost-effective solutions.
