National Freight Advisory Committee to Meet Nov. 21
The Department of Transportation has announced that the National Freight Advisory Committee will hold an open meeting Nov. 21 at DOT headquarters in Washington, D.C. The NFAC provides information, advice and recommendations to the DOT on matters relating to U.S. freight transportation, including implementation of the freight transportation requirements of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), establishment of the National Freight Network, development of a National Freight Strategic Plan, development of strategies to help states implement state freight advisory committees and state freight plans, development of measures of conditions and performance in freight transportation, development of freight transportation investment, data and planning tools, and legislative recommendations.
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg will be conducting a webinar Nov. 15 to review what freight forwarders, freight brokers and motor carriers need to know about MAP-21, which may also have implications for customs brokers.
At the Nov. 21 meeting, NFAC’s second, the DOT will provide a presentation to members and the committee’s six subcommittees will meet for one hour and then report to the full committee. Those interested in attending this meeting should notify DOT no later than Nov. 13.
