With true signs of momentum for a new, and badly needed, federal transportation infrastructure bill seemingly forever stuck in neutral, it is refreshing to see the nation’s top trucking lobbyist, American Trucking Associations (ATA) President and CEO Chris Spear continue to ring the bell (loudly) for federal action to get the wheels on new legislation moving.

Infrastructure is having a good month in Washington. Lobbyists and lawmakers are eagerly optimistic about a bill coming out of Congress this year. And President Donald J. Trump talked up infrastructure a bit during his State of the Union address.

A combination of rising global interest rates and ongoing trade protectionism will continue to create unexpected turbulence for logistics managers over the course of 2019, say analysts. Meanwhile emerging markets will provide opportunities for faster growth—yet each faces its own set of operational challenges.

While much of today’s mainstream news, as it relates to the supply chain, is focused on topical trade-related things like tariffs and the future of NAFTA, one constant that remains intact, although it does not receive the commensurate amount of attention, is the state of our nation’s infrastructure.

Late last week, nearly thirty transportation grants were awarded by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) through its Nationally Significant Freight and Highway Projects program, which was established in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act of 2015. The Nationally Significant Freight and Highway Projects program is now called the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) program, with the program’s chief objective to make needed investments is critical freight and highway needs.

Infrastructure is an early casualty of Washington’s fixation on the November mid-term elections. Retiring House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and others are signaling that Trump’s $200 billion federal infrastructure plan is all but dead for this year.
