The U.S. DOT is seeking input from public and private transportation stakeholders including state and local agencies, industry trade groups, and shippers to aid the development of the National Freight Strategic Plan. DOT recognizes the importance of engaging with the public and private industry to develop a clear, national vision for freight transportation that is inclusive of both public- and private-sector perspectives.
