Hawaii is about to become a major global player in the transportation industry with the opening of a new, $30 billion truck and transit transport terminal.
The first truck and bus terminal in the US is set to open to traffic in 2020.
Its expected to be the largest in the world.
Hawaii will be the first state in the nation to open a major truck and vehicle transport terminal in 2020 and the first in the United States to open its first active transport terminal, with the arrival of a vehicle transporter trailer.
The State Department announced the opening today.
“We are proud to announce that the new Hawaii Transportation Terminal will be a significant component of our future transportation system,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said in a statement.
Hawaii has a history of trucking and has become one of the world’s largest container ports.
Truck traffic at the terminal is expected to increase significantly with a new trailer and trailer assembly facility being built.
About 5,000 people will be employed at the new facility, which will include 1,500 truck assembly and delivery positions.
The project is a partnership between the Department of Transportation and the Pacific Islands Transport and Transportation Development Authority.
The truck and trailer terminal will be used to facilitate the installation of vehicles and the transportation of people between Hawaii and the mainland United States.
The state is the nation’s largest producer of trucks and trailers and has a trucking industry that is the third largest in North America behind California and Texas.
The announcement comes as the U.S. Transportation Department and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration prepare to release the first annual report on freight traffic in the country, which is expected later this month.
The report, which the Federal Trade Commission has not yet made public, is expected by the end of this year.
The agency has been looking at ways to make the United Kingdom more attractive to foreign trucking companies.
It will also look at ways the government can boost its own truck and tractor fleet, as well as ways to improve the safety of its transportation network.
