R&T Portfolio: Freight

The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA’s) Freight Management and Operations research program is developing training, tools, data and analysis to support the public and private sectors in freight system management. Developing a better understanding of how freight moves and impacts the transportation network will enable State and local agencies to implement improved operational processes and increase reliability of the movement of goods throughout the National Highway Freight Network, on the National Highway Network, the National Highway System (including the Interstate Highway System) and the broader, multimodal transportation network.

Program Objectives:

  • Assess the condition and performance of key freight infrastructure.
  • Improve our understanding of the impact of freight movement on key freight infrastructure.
  • Develop and improve freight data analysis tools and data collection techniques.
  • Initiate stakeholder forums and outreach, peer exchanges, pilot implementations, research, training, and technology transfer to ensure safe, durable, and high-performing infrastructure and operations.
