Reshoring and its impact on Transportation Infrastructure & US Economy

Reshoring is expected to have a tremendous impact on the United States (US) economy and on the utilization of the existing transportation infrastructures of the country. It is an immense need to identify the potential companies in the US that will bring their manufacturing operations back in the US and to identify the impact on US economy and transportation. The change in location and subsequent alteration in product supply chain due to reshoring will cause changes in infrastructure needs to address issues such as capacity constraints, delays, and congestions.
