Texas Freight 2055 Roundtable

What will an effective, efficient, and safe Texas freight transportation system look like four decades into the future? The Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) and the Center for Transportation Research at the University of Texas at Austin identified trends that could impact businesses’ requirements for future freight transportation and conducted business interviews to gain an improved understanding of the envisioned future freight transportation system that will meet their business requirements. The study team also hosted a one day workshop to review the study findings and to discuss the role of the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) in conducting proactive freight planning that will support the future growth of industry and ultimately of the Texas economy. The Freight 2055 Roundtable was held at the North Central Texas Council of Governments in Arlington on Wednesday, July 8, 2015. Participants included representatives from ports, rail, highways, cities, corporations, metropolitan planning organizations, logistics service providers, engineering and planning firms, consulting firms, and academia.
