Ports Performance Statistics Program to Be Established

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Included as part of the long-term highway bill Congress is set to approve this week is a provision establishing a Port Performance Statistics Program under the DOT's Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS). The provision requires BTS to form a working group to include private and public sector participants to develop an agreed upon set of metrics to be included in an annual report. BTS will have 60 days to establish the group and develop the metrics.


NASSTRAC has pushed to have the provision included in the highway bill and is pleased to see an important step being made to provide better information concerning performance at the busiest U.S. ports.
