Advocacy

The Coalition is dedicated to raising awareness about the nation's freight needs, both on Capitol Hill and with the general public. CAGTC also aims to serve as a resource to the Administration and to Congress to provide a historical perspective and information about freight program implementation and needs. To meet these goals, the Coalition has developed various educational materials to demonstrate the vital role goods movement plays in our nation's economy and in our every day lives.
