Freight Emission Modeling for Framework Phase One: Generating County-Level Freight Data using Public Sources

This is phase one of a multi-year research project funded by the National Center for Freight and Infrastructure Research and Education (CFIRE). The overall objective is to develop a regional freight planning model which can be applied to regional freight emission modeling. Analogous to passenger travel models, a regional freight planning model will require good quality regional freight survey data, the availability of which has been one of the biggest obstacle in freight modeling. This paper describes an on-going effort to generating county-level freight shipment data by commodity type using publicly available data sources as the first step to freight modeling.
