Transportation is the life blood of our economy. As we return to the 'before times,' ask any businessperson — whether they're a Defense Department contractor heading to the Pentagon for briefings, a broker heading to New York for meetings, or a hotel manager on the Boardwalk in Virginia Beach trying to attract visitors from out of state — what their biggest travel challenge is, and they'll most likely say 'uncertainty.' When it comes to the movement of people and goods, redundancy and diversification are not bad words.
