GAO – Report on Freight Congestion
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report on approaches to mitigate freight congestion. It states, among other things, that increasing congestion on the national transportation system poses a threat to the efficient flow of goods and has strained the system in some locations. Recent growth in international trade has placed even greater pressure on ports and distribution hubs. GAO-09-163R (11/20/08).
