The U.S. transportation industry is slowly inching forward, thanks in part to increased hiring by several employers.

For example, The Gazette reports that the transportation sector is one of several industries that Maryland officials expect will grow in 2013. In fact, some business leaders are focused on getting more funds for transportation projects to help bring new jobs to the area.

“It’s really important for the state to invest more to build and maintain bridges, roads and other transportation infrastructure,” Georgette Godwin, president and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce in Montgomery County, Maryland, told the news source.

In New Jersey, state administrators saw a significant increase in the number of transportation industry workers in December 2012. According to NJBIZ, at least 6,000 jobs were added in this sector last month, and the future looks bright for the segment.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie noted that the state is recovering from the economic recession of the late 2000s, and the increase in employment opportunities could further enhance the local economy. Additionally, new workers could help their employers thrive and provide these businesses with additional revenue streams.
