WHAT: Remarks, Transportation Table Luncheon

WHEN: 1 p.m., Friday, June 3 (Lunch begins at 12:30 p.m., session ends at 2 p.m.)

Now moving over nine billions of freight annually, trucking is expected to haul 13 billion tons by 2014, dramatically increasing the need for infrastructure improvements to ease congestion, conserve costly diesel fuel, and to safely maintain just-in-time delivery processes now integrated into American manufacturing’s production lines.
