The $1.2 billion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Biden late last year has been heralded by some as the solution to the problem of how to repair and expand the nation’s crumbling and antiquated system of roads, rails, ports, airports and waterways. One can only hope. Past efforts have stalled due to the failure to come up with the money to pay for them. And this latest bill doesn’t promise all of the funds that will be needed in years to come. So what will the impact of the bill actually be on transportation infrastructure? We discuss the issue with Matt Comte, operations transformation leader with PwC. He delves into the details of the measure, addresses the issue of funding, and offers advice on how companies can prepare for the act’s rollout. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
