Trucking and Infrastructure

The backbone of our nation’s consumer-driven economy is the Interstate system, the roads on which the vast majority of freight travels from ports to retailers. Old Dominion Freight Line CEO David Congdon cautions policy makers against underfunding infrastructure improvements and advocates for an increase in fuel taxes to increase the capacity of the region’s roads. On this program, the trucking leader explains why Florida’s transportation investments may be ones for other states to watch, and why he’s asking lawmakers in several states for permission to tow three trailers behind trucks. N.C. Chamber of Commerce President Lew Ebert and Mark Farris of the York County Economic Development Board join the conversation.
