Members of the Transportation Trades Department are promoting the development of new transportation industry positions around the United States. According to The Trucker, transportation union officials recently introduced an aggressive agenda that is promoting job growth in the transportation sector in 2013. 

New York Congressman Tim Bishop encouraged transportation segment employers to bolster their operations to help the national economy grow. 

"Investments in infrastructure put skilled laborers to work now and lay the foundation for a growing economy in the future," Bishop told the news source. 

Recent data shows that specific transportation segments added jobs in January 2013, including the trucking sector. Transport Topics reports that the trucking segment added 5,000 jobs last month, which bodes well for the transportation industry as a whole. 

As the national economy rebounds from the recession of the late 2000s, more transportation industry employers could seek skilled professionals to improve their work teams. Qualified job seekers can provide essential contributions to these employers and help transportation firms grow in short periods of time.

Additionally, the country's economy could create more opportunities for transportation firms. Companies could rely on the transportation industry for reliable support with shipping and receiving processes, and businesses in this segment could significantly enhance their operations if they receive extra support.
