Airforwarders Association Urges Infrastructure Investment in First 100 Days

(WASHINGTON) - The Airforwarders Association urges the incoming Trump Administration to prioritize infrastructure investment in the first 100 days of his Administration.  AfA’s Executive Director Brandon Fried states, “We wholeheartedly agree with President-elect Trump’s desire to build the next generation of roads, bridges, railway, tunnels, seaports, and airports.”

Further Mr. Fried adds, “We understand that President-elect Trump will have many competing objectives in the first 100 days of his Administration.  We firmly believe that infrastructure investment right out the gate will have the most direct impact on U.S. citizens and businesses and will demonstrate that bipartisanship can work for all Americans.”

Airforwarders have a vested interest in improving the underlying infrastructure that supply chains depend on to facilitate the delivery of thousands of shipments every day in the United States.  Freight forwarders utilize all modes of transportation. “Time is money in our business, and a better infrastructure equates to cost savings, more profits and ultimately the creation of more jobs in our industry.  As a businessman, Mr. Trump gets the nexus to our industry,” states Fried.
