The Freight and Land Use Workshop is a one-day training session intended to provide an in-depth, hands-on understanding of the land use needs of freight-generating facilities; the potential impacts freight land uses can have on the transportation system, communities, and the natural environment; strategies that can reduce or mitigate the impacts of freight land uses; and the roles stakeholder groups can play in implementing those strategies.

This workshop provides specific guidance to planning practitioners on how to integrate freight and land use considerations within the transportation planning and programming process, and offers the tools and resources to assess the impacts of land use decisions on freight movements, as well as the impacts of freight development and growth on land use planning goals.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the importance of coordinating land use policies and freight transportation planning
  • Describe methods for coordinating freight land use with local, regional, and state comprehensive and transportation planning processes
  • Describe methods to avoid or mitigate impacts of freight land uses on surrounding land uses and the environment
  • Identify examples of sustainable freight land use strategies and initiatives
  • Locate the resources and tools available to address freight and land use considerations within the transportation and comprehensive planning processes


The target audience for this course includes a variety of transportation and planning professionals involved in transportation or land use planning, with a particular focus on municipal and county land use and transportation planners; and local, regional, or state economic development officials. This course is also relevant for State DOT planners; environmental specialists; engineers and specialists; MPO staff; Federal transportation employees, particularly FHWA and FRA staff; private sector stakeholders, particularly representatives from industrial real estate development, trucking, rail, and other industry associations, and port and port authority staff. Secondary audiences include Federal and state resource agency staff, EPA staff, elected officials or MPO board members, shippers or industry leaders, consultants, and citizen activists.
