CRAIN’s Freight Forum Highlights CREATE

The CREATE partners thank CRAIN’S Chicago Business for spotlighting CREATE’s role in shortening commute times, addressing environmental challenges, and improving freight movement throughout the Chicago region. According to the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, “industries that rely on the frequent shipment of goods – manufacturing, construction, retail and wholesale trade – add more than $158 billion annually to the area economy.” The CREATE Program is proud to strengthen Chicago’s historic role as freight handler to the nation.

CRAIN’S multi-part freight forum also highlights the need to consider economic growth and technological development through an equity lens, reminding us that today’s transportation decisions can have impacts for decades to come.
