The auto industry and many others rely on smoothly functioning, cross-border supply chains that enable companies to develop economies of scale and combine locally specific resources from regions across the continent, thereby enhancing their competitiveness and creating jobs. Congestion, poor maintenance, conflicting regulations – whatever creates delay — erode supply chain efficiency and undermine competitiveness.This is what economists call “deep” or “structural” integration. Few would disagree that the unsatisfactory state of the freight-transportation infrastructure is seriously compromising the efficiency of supply chains.

The declining performance of the surface transportation network—as a result of both inadequate capacity and inefficient management—will choke economic progress, preventing the U. Without changes, countries such as China and India, with more dynamic policies for transportation and economic growth, will challenge the U. in economic power and world influence.” If these reports speak only of the United States, it must be clear to Canadians and Mexicans that the words apply equally to them.Simply put, the impact of a deteriorating freight transportation system will affect all North Americans.
