South Carolina Trucking Association - Board of Directors Meeting
SCDOT was invited to discuss the Statewide Multimodal Transportation Plan to the South Carolina Trucking Association (SCTA) Board of Directors at their annual retreat. On October 3, 2012 Doug Frate of SCDOT and members of the statewide planning team gave an overview of the plan and engaged the board in a freight planning discussion.

This discussion was documented and will provide the planning team with invaluable input into the condition of the transportation system and the role it plays in their industry today as well as issues facing the transportation business in future years. This first of many such discussions with stakeholders around the state will continue to guide this multimodal planning effort.

Upcoming Freight Listening Sessions
As part of our continued effort to engage and hear from transportation stakeholders, a series of freight listening sessions will be held early next year.

With support from the Transportation, Distribution and Logistics Council of New Carolina, the freight listening sessions are designed to engage transportation and freight oriented business representatives by facilitating a dialogue of transportation needs and concerns. These discussions are designed to gather information to further guide the SCDOT Statewide Freight Plan and support improvements that will improve freight efficiency.

Detailed information about the freight listening sessions will be included in emailed invitations and on this website. Specific times and locations will be announced soon.

Quotes from our stakeholders

"This will be a new and integrated plan for transportation in South Carolina with an emphasis on commerce and safety. The plan will help us manage the transportation system we have and help us decide how to spend scarce resources to improve the system."

Secretary Bobby Hitt - South Carolina Department of Commerce

"Ship sizes are increasing, and increasing exports are helping to create a balance with imports at the port. While these trends are good for South Carolina, they put pressure on the transportation infrastructure, and this study will help us address that pressure."

Jack Ellenberg - Vice President, South Carolina State Ports Authority

"This is the first time I have seen this level of cooperation at the state agency level. FHWA looks forward to working with you in this partnership to document the performance of the transportation system, to focus on freight efficiency, and to take advantage of the funding flexibility contained in recent federal programs."

Bob Lee - South Carolina Division Administrator, Federal Highway Administration
