This article describes a framework for planning from a state's perspective for the infrastructure to support efficient intermodal freight transportation. A prototype set of models and procedures is established using existing transportation planning techniques and principles. The methodology is flexible, so that it can adapt to changing planning concerns and resources and can be applied to a broad range of issues. Throughout the process, the role of a Freight Advisory Council is shown to reflect the input and perspective of the private sector. The methodology is applicable with limited freight flow data and can lead to standard practices in statewide freight transportation planning.
