“The Freight Shuttle has the potential to reduce freight congestion, transportation costs, and air emissions and we support these goals,” said Janiece Longoria, chairman of the Port Commission of the Port of Houston Authority.
“Container volumes continue to grow,” added Roger Guenther, executive director.
“We’ve continually innovated our terminals to accommodate that demand through expanded capacity and increased cargo velocity. The potential that the Freight Shuttle provides to complement the existing road and rail transportation system and contribute to economic growth and creation of jobs is truly exciting.”
“Innovation requires challenging current ways of thinking,” said Gordon Dorsey, vice president, FSI Commercial Development. “FSI has come up with a practical and elegant solution to freight transportation, but it also requires partnerships to come together to bring ideas into reality.”
Steve Roop, FSI’s chairman and president, stated, “We’ve been developing the freight shuttle concept for over a decade, but now it is a real, tangible system which people can see, and that makes a difference in attracting partners to support future development, refinement and deployment.”
