The Role of Freight Transportation in Economic Competitiveness

by Steve Wagner on June 1, 2015

The Transportation Research Board (TRB) recently published the proceedings of a December 2014 conference that explored the trends in freight transportation and economic competitiveness, as well as global business models and supply chains. Sessions addressed modal perspectives on supply chains, transportation system resiliency, transportation and energy sector developments, and global freight supply-chain issues. 

CFIRE researchers presented a poster entitled “Visualizing the Role of Intermodal Terminals on the Primary Freight Network: Uncovering Data Gaps for Systems Analysis” that outlined the challenges for creating an inventory of intermodal terminals in the Midwest as part of the Mid-America Freight Coalition Regional Freight Study (RFS).
