Trucking is big business in Texas and poised to get even bigger with the expansion of the Panama Canal. In fact, as the country’s leading goods export state, Texas is well positioned to take advantage of the Panama Canal expansion and other opportunities to increase the export of dry bulk, liquid bulk, general and break bulk cargo, and containers to existing and new markets.
