In response to the rapid growth of freight activities in this nation, transportation planning agencies at all levels are working towards better integrating freight into the traditional passenger-originated transportation planning and programming process. The goal is to examine the issues associated with both freight and passenger transportation; evaluate the potential impacts of alternative policies and projects for addressing these issues (such as those discussed in the other theme areas of CFIRE); develop plans and programs that represent the optimal allocation of resources; and ultimately provide effectively-integrated multimodal freight transportation systems that sustain economic competitiveness and quality of life.
