Ice Miller Strategies (IMS)
IMS serves as Freight Shuttle’s legislative, government agency, and NGO liaison in Washington DC. They have been instrumental in elevating Freight Shuttle’s profile in our nation’s capital since 2014, enabling Freight Shuttle to pursue the definition of a new mode of freight transportation in 2015’s transportation reauthorization act – the FAST Act – defining “Intelligent Freight Transportation Systems” as an addition to the national highway system and placing these systems under the regulatory authority of FHWA. IMS’s deep knowledge and understanding of both DHS and USDOT, in addition to their experience with lawmakers, committees of jurisdiction, and legislative process, has proven invaluable to advancing the Freight Shuttle vision of a new approach in transportation technology and financing.
