The transportation of goods in Washington State plays a critical role in fostering economic vitality and enhancing competitiveness. Freight transportation systems, including roads, bridges, and highways, to railroads, pipelines, and ports, to factories, warehouses, and terminals are critical to supporting and growing more jobs, more regional domestic product, and a larger tax base. The multimodal freight transportation system allows business in Washington to effectively compete in regional and global markets.
