For a decade, Texas has been the United States’ leading exporter. Our president’s appointment to this committee makes us a part of the leadership of the freight industry backbone of Texas. As an oil and gas logistics freight forwarder and customs broker, we’re here to listen to our customers’ ideas and thoughts with respect to everything from air freight to hauling drill rigs, from simple trucking to project logistics.
Texas International Freight looks forward to providing advice and recommendations to TXDOT regarding freight transportation and will help identify new ways to help grow Texas’ economy and business success. One of our top priorities is planning safe and efficient fright transportation as it is for everyone involved in Texas freight forwarding and all others whose cargo travels over Texas roads. The Freight Advisory Committee meets quarterly as recommended by MAP-21 legislation to develop transportation plans and policies. On behalf of manufacturers who ship from, to, and through Texas, we are here to your responses and experiences to try to better the Texas logistics and freight environment.
