Frozen food makers depend on a reliable, safe and state-of- the-art logistics and supply chain network to efficiently and competitively produce and distribute their products. AFFI actively advocates for policies designed to improve, grow and adequately fund our nation’s transit system.
AFFI’s logistics and supply chain-related priorities include:
- Urging Congress to find a long-term solution that ensures the solvency of the Highway Trust Fund that isn’t entirely reliant on an increased gas tax.
- Advocating for a reformed federal truck weight program that promotes interstate commerce while affording states greater flexibility to authorize the use of safer, cleaner, more productive vehicles.
- AFFI supports an Hours of Service policy that allows the trucking companies the greatest flexibility in scheduling drivers while maintaining a culture of safety.
- Delaying implementation of Positive Train Control to ensure our nation’s freight rail can continue to operate uninterrupted.
