Trade and Transportation Advisory Council

The Trade and Transportation Advisory Council affords the Bank a deeper insight into key economic information related to the transportation and domestic and international trade sectors in the Sixth District. The council representatives have extensive knowledge in such areas as trucking, rail, maritime shipping, ports, and air cargo. By providing an important channel of communication between the Bank and important constituents in the region's business community, the council assists in the Bank's assessment of the economy and, ultimately, in its monetary policy deliberations.
