Keeping Supply Chains Open & Resilient

Retail supply chains, which support millions of American jobs, are continuing to recover from the major disruptions over the last few years. A functioning supply chain drives economic productivity and growth, lifts communities, supplies consumers with goods and makes our economy work for everyone

RILA advocated on behalf of bipartisan legislation to increase funding for ports, rails and roads along with legislation to provide increased authority to the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC). Both laws will help modernize an aging infrastructure and ensure an efficient and competitive supply chain.

It is imperative the government works with the private sector to tackle some of the most enduring issues in the nation’s supply chain - the ability to share critical data for the uninterrupted flow of goods, measure freight fluidity throughout the nation’s transportation networks and ensure labor challenges at supply chain hubs are quickly resolved. Retailers and its workers suffer from these inefficiencies - outdated infrastructure, a lack of modern automation and the absence of sound long-term planning that is informed by major infrastructure users.

RILA will work closely with the FMC, the administration and Congress to expedite priority projects, ensure proper accountability and help keep our global supply chain resilient and efficient.
