THE
PROBLEM

MORE TRAFFIC

MORE POLLUTION

MORE ACCIDENTS

DEMAND FOR CONSUMER & COMMERCIAL GOODS IS GROWING

TRADE HAS GROWN SIGNIFICANTLY IN RECENT DECADES. MOST COMMERCIAL CARGO TRAVELING LESS THAN 500 MILES IS CURRENTLY MOVED BY TRUCKS, WHICH SHARE PUBLIC ROADS WITH PRIVATE VEHICLES. 

RESULTING IN

INCREASED TRAFFIC CONGESTION

While economic growth and increased commerce are good things for the state of  Texas and the country as a whole, the resulting truck traffic increases traffic congestion, pollution and safety risks for travelers. 

DECLINING PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE 

The volume of truck and private vehicle traffic in many areas has grown faster than our transportation infrastructure was designed to handle.

MORE POLLUTION

Auto exhaust, particularly what contributes to increased emissions in congested urban areas, such as during rush hour –increases air pollution, resulting in worsening pulmonary health and rising societal health care costs.

THESE PROBLEMS ARE

MOST EVIDENT IN

AROUND SEAPORTS

BORDER CROSSINGS

MAJOR INTERMODAL CARGO HUBS

METROPOLITAN AREAS

MORE TRUCK TRAFFIC ON OUR ROADWAYS MEANS:

MORE TIME SPENT SITTING IN TRAFFIC

MORE POLLUTION FROM IDLING VEHICLES

This results in problems costly to society due to increased emissions, infrastructure damage and accidents.

In addition, shippers and independent truck drivers are seeing their costs of doing business rise as the requirements for just-in-time delivery, fuel and vehicle maintenance costs and the constant consumer demand for lower prices intersect. 

 

Coupled with the lack of truck drivers, trucks and equipment in some regions makes delivering goods to local markets not only costly, but in some cases cost prohibitive.
