LTL TRUCKING IN LOS ANGELES: CONGESTION RELIEF THROUGH TERMINAL SITING

This article summarizes the findings of a research study, conducted at the University of California, that assessed the potential for reducing trucking delays caused by urban road congestion in the Los Angeles region. The emphasis is on improved selection of terminal sites for Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) common carriers, especially on the feasibility of placing terminals at locations which exploit surplus freeway capacity (e.g., "reverse commuting"). The following issues are addressed: (1) Where and when is there excess capacity on the LA freeway system? (2) to what extent are carriers currently exposed to congestion? (3) Where are trucking terminals currently located? and (4) Where are the opportunities for improved terminal sites?
