Shant Boyajian Discusses Impact of Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act on Freight Industry

American Journal of Transportation

Shant Boyajian was quoted in the American Journal of Transportation article “Transportation Leaders Across the Country Celebrate Infrastructure Bill’s Historic Freight Investments.” The article discusses the decidedly positive impact that the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) will have on stakeholders in the freight industry, as it provides a historic level of investment – up to $77.9 billion – to seaports, highways, rail and other infrastructure “critical to the safe, efficient and reliable movement of goods.”

Commenting on the topic, Shant said, “The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act represents a transformational investment in the critical infrastructure necessary to move people and goods safely and efficiently. Public agencies will utilize these funds and policy enhancements to deliver needed projects. Importantly, this Act improves federal transportation policy related to the use of public-private partnerships and other forms of alternative delivery. These policies will encourage public agencies to ascertain the most efficient delivery method for each project, considering the full lifecycle of costs, to deliver the best product to the taxpayer.”
