Development of a Method to Forecast Freight Demand Arising from the Final Demand Sector and Examination of Federal Data to Analyze Transportation Demand for Local Area Through Trips

The project includes two primary objectives. The first objective is to create a method and a database to forecast freight demand arising from the household sector. This demand comes both from households within Alabama and from households in other states when finished goods are transshipped through Alabama. The second objective is to use the US Department of Transportation Freight Analysis Framework Version 2 database to forecast the amount of pass through freight expected in urbanized areas in the state.
