Abstract:

This report provides reference information on freight transportation planning processes, techniques, tools, data, and applications. The report is organized in a Guidebook format to assist planning practitioners and policy analysts to effectively integrate freight planning and demand forecasting into the broader multimodal transportation planning process. Because freight issues are now major concerns to the state departments of transportation, metropolitan planning organizations, port and airport authorities, rail and trucking providers, shippers, and various federal agencies, this Guidebook will provide much needed assistance to a wide range of practitioners. The appendices of the Guidebook contain useful information concerning factors impacting freight demand; freight demand forecasting studies; freight data sources; descriptions of survey procedures; statistical forecasting techniques; transport cost estimation; modal diversion and descriptions of related models; case studies; and public agency information needs. This Guidebook is intended to support a range of planning including strategic and policy planning, statewide or regional systems planning, and more detailed project-level analyses. It will also serve as a basic educational resource into the components of effective freight planning.
