Supply Chain News: Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Land Ports of Entry

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) makes historic investments in strengthening supply chains, including in land ports of entry.

Land port infrastructure projects will strengthen supply chains, create jobs

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) signed by President Biden makes historic investments in strengthening supply chains, making long-overdue improvements for our nation’s ports, airports, rail, and roads.

The law includes $3.4 billion for the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to undertake 26 major construction and modernization projects at land ports of entry (LPOEs). These land port modernization projects will create good-paying local jobs, bolster safety and security, and make the economy more resilient to supply chain challenges – all while serving as models for sustainability and innovation.

With an average age of nearly 40 years, a majority of the country’s land ports of entry are outdated and long overdue for modernization. Most land ports operate at full capacity and have surpassed the needs for which they were designed.
