Freight transportation issues can be complex and involve many different stakeholders, all of whom have different perspectives on the freight transportation system. The challenge faced by many public-sector transportation professionals is how to best incorporate these freight perspectives into the transportation decision-making process in a way that results in a safe and efficient transportation system for both people and goods. This Web-based training course will provide a greater understanding of freight trends, its stakeholders, and its issues, so that public-sector transportation professionals are better able to incorporate freight into their respective transportation processes and programs.
It is recommended that you take this course before other Freight courses.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Identify the stakeholders involved in freight transportation
Explain the role of different modes in freight transportation
Describe some trends affecting freight transportation, and their impact on the transportation system and communities
Discuss some of the common issues that prevent freight from being fully incorporated into the transportation decision-making process
Identify key resources to help guide statewide and metropolitan freight planning effort
Determine the impact and reach of decisions on freight during the transportation decision-making process
The target audience for this course is comprised of staff from a broad range of agencies (FHWA, MPOs, State DOTs, local jurisdictions, AMPO, NARC, NADO, AASHTO, as well as other State and regional agencies) who must take freight into account in their transportation decision-making processes.
