  A new report released today by TRIP, a DC-based national transportation research nonprofit, found that additional investments in freight networks will be necessary to minimize supply chain disruptions.
 
Georgia is home to three of the top 20 U.S. truck bottlenecks, slowing freight shipments as vehicle travel nears pre-pandemic levels and new federal funding reaches states.
 
Signed into law in November, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will increase investment in highway, road and bridge projects needed to improve the efficiency of the nation’s supply chain over the next five years — a 34% increase over current funding levels.
