Anyone affected by the transportation industry has been following with interest the current moves that the United States Congress has been making. It is no secret that important funding is on the line and that lack of funding generally has impacted the transportation and trucking industry, in particular. The effects of current events, if they don’t play out in transportation’s favor, could seriously alter the transportation and shipping choices many business owners make.
If making a serious move down the coast, for example, is going to be far too expensive, home owners who need to move house might find shipping by sea actually cheaper and more effective. Certainly businesses that have to ship heavy equipment via trucking or other methods might choose, when possible, to use a different route.

We can help you figure out the best way to get there for your budget and your deadline, despite what Congress might do.
