As a leading shipper across major modes of freight transportation, International Paper supports legislative efforts to make significant investments in U.S. transportation infrastructure. Our company spends more than $2 billion annually to ship goods throughout the U.S. and from our ports to global customers. Maximizing the safe and efficient transportation of each shipment is our priority and we can achieve this by supporting:

  • A multi-state, multi-year pilot program in which the safety of more efficient 91,000 lb. trucks with a 6th axle can be evaluated.
  • New funding sources in order to move trucks safely.
  • Federal investment in rural transportation in order to connect manufacturers to global markets.
