Greater investment needs to be made in America’s infrastructure — smart investment to enhance goods movement, alleviate congestion and promote economic competitiveness.
Our country’s multi-modal infrastructure network is the backbone of the American economy and with 95% of the world’s consumers living outside our borders, we need our exports to reach more markets in more cost-effective and efficient ways.
Improving America’s infrastructure, however, requires both more direct public funding and opportunities for private investment. UPS supports a user-pay, user-benefit system of increased, sustained and dedicated surface transportation funding, which will benefit businesses, consumers and the American public.
