(SR300)Talking Freight - Trucking Industry Traveler Information: Resources and Needs
7/17/2013 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST
The trucking industry relies on an efficient roadway network to pick up goods from and deliver goods to their customers. However, recurring or non-recurring traffic congestion, weather conditions, work zones, or other factors reduce or could reduce the efficiency of the roadway network. Because truck carriers often make time-sensitive deliveries that are required to occur within a certain delivery window, obtaining information about roadway network conditions when the network is operating at less than 100% efficiency is often a critical need for truck carriers. Both the public and private sector can provide valuable traveler information resources for the trucking industry. This webinar will provide information on the kinds of traveler information needs and sources different carriers in the trucking industry rely on, and also provide information on a State department of transportation's truck traveler information efforts.
