Export Promotion Cabinet is Good News For Trucking Companies

Some good news for the trucking industry coming out of Washington DC.  It looks like president Obama has created what he is calling the Export Promotion Cabinet.  He had previously issued something called the National Export Initiative (NEI) and this new cabinet will be tasked with implementing this administrative initiative.

The goal of the NEI is to “improve conditions that directly affect the private sector’s ability to transport.”  He continues by saying:

“Creating jobs in the U.S. and ensuring a return to sustainable economic growth is the top priority for my administration,” Obama said in announced the export cabinet. “A critical component of stimulating economic growth in the U.S. is ensuring that U.S. businesses can actively participate in international markets by increasing their exports of goods, services, and agricultural products. Improved export performance will, in turn, create good high-paying jobs.”

In addition, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood was quoted as saying they were “very near” fully revealing a new plan to handle cross-border trucking with Mexico.  There is currently a ban on trucking exports with Mexico.
