NOTES:The information contained in this course has not been updated to reflect major changes in freight and planning such as those enacted under the MAP-21 and the FAST-Act.
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 planners is how to best incorporate these freight perspectives into the transportation planning 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 planners are better able to incorporate freight into their respective transportation planning processes and programs.
This is a prerequisite course for other Freight courses.
