DOT Publishes Transportation Supply Chain RFI – 9-16-21

Yesterday the DOT published a request for information in the Federal Register (86 FR 51719-51720) on “America's Supply Chains and the Transportation Industrial Base” in support of the President’s EO 14017, America's Supply Chains. In this RFI, DOT is soliciting practical solutions from a broad range of stakeholders to address current and future challenges to supply chain resilience in the freight and logistics sector. DOT is specifically asking for information related to cybersecurity risks.

The RFI solicits written comments on 13 different subject areas. One of those areas specifically includes cybersecurity:

“6. Technology issues, including information systems, cybersecurity risks, and interoperability, that affect the safe, efficient, and reliable movement of goods. Would greater standardization of those technologies help address those challenges?”

Written comments may be submitted via the Federal eRulemaking Portal (; Docket Number DOT-OST-2021-0106). Comments should be submitted by October 18th, 2021.
