Freight Performance Measurement White Paper

The Coalition, in conjunction with FHWA, demonstrated the feasibility of measuring supply chain performance across multistate jurisdictions, identified future data and analytical methodology needs, and outlined a set of general and programmatic recommendations for public sector consideration. The project examined freight fluidity using three performance measures (travel time, travel time reliability and cost) across five representative supply chains (Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, Food Products, Agriculture, and Electronics).    The study also identified short-term solutions for defining the most critical trade lanes, industries, and commodity flows and longer-term solutions for improved data and multimodal approaches; and, inputs for a guide on how to implement MAP-21/FAST Act.  The resulting white paper and project presentations can be found at the following links:
