WASHINGTON , January 25, 2023 (press release) –

Bipartisan SHIP IT Act introduced by Congressmen Dusty Johnson (R-SD-AL) and Rep. Jim Costa (D-CA-21st) boosts supply chains in the United States

The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) President and CEO Heidi Brock issued the following statement in response to The Safer Highways and Increased Performance for Interstate Trucking (SHIP IT) Act introduced on Tuesday.

“AF&PA is proud to support the Safer Highways and Increased Performance for Interstate Trucking (SHIP IT) Act to help alleviate supply chain constraints experienced across industries resulting from challenges related to the ongoing rail labor uncertainties.

“AF&PA has long advocated for many of the key provisions in this bipartisan bill. We thank Rep. Dusty Johnson (R-SD-AL) and Rep. Jim Costa (D-CA-21st) for their continued support, leadership and commitment to crafting a multifaceted approach to build stronger supply chains in the United States.

“This legislation will provide more flexibility and reliability to the forest products industry for receiving products integral to the papermaking process. Reliable transportation helps deliver our essential products to their final destination faster and more efficiently. We look forward to working with our partners in the Shippers Coalition and on Capitol Hill to move the SHIP IT Act forward in the 118th U.S. Congress.”
