How is our current infrastructure in North America affecting businesses that are trying to stimulate our economy? Our infrastructure directly relates to the bottom line because it dictates how fast or slow goods move from state to state, province to province or even country to country.

We also talk about the ultimate price the shippers are paying for this, what the solution might be and what the future looks like for our intermodal transportation network. CIFFA is also making sure their voices are heard with government and advocating for the forwarders and shippers - Find out more in this amazing episode! Enjoy!
