Today the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry released a highly anticipated report with recommendations to help the state grow as a leading logistics hub: Transportation2030.
“Our transportation infrastructure could be one of the greatest economic opportunities for our state — or one of the greatest economic failures of our generation,” said Daniel P. Mehan, president and CEO of the Missouri Chamber. “We are eager to share the innovative ideas in our new Transportation2030 report. This data will help drive the conversation as we work to improve our state’s transportation infrastructure.”
The report contains a total of 22 recommendations for strengthening Missouri’s road, port, air and rail assets. It launched during the kickoff of the Missouri Chamber’s annual transportation summit, where speakers included Gov. Mike Parson, MoDOT Director Patrick McKenna, report author Ted Abernathy and transportation thought leaders from across the nation.
Transportation2030: Making Missouri A Leading Logistics Hub is the latest spinoff study of Missouri 2030, the Missouri Chamber’s 15-year strategic initiative focused around four drivers: preparing the workforce, competing for jobs, connecting through infrastructure and uniting the business community. Previously released studies include Workforce2030 and Technology2030.
