U.S. Department of Transportation
This subcommittee promotes, discusses, and organizes research in freight models. Research interests include freight model development, model uses, data needs, and integration with other models. We welcome participation from individuals from around the world with an interest in freight modeling. Part of the subcommittee’s mission is to cultivate international partnerships between the AT015 Freight Transportation Planning and Logistics Committee and similar entities from around the world by: sharing technical information, supporting joint research activities and conferences, and enhancing international participation in TRB activities. In the future, the subcommittee may support ancillary activities including research needs statement designs or workshop session organization.
(Coming Soon) Freight Modeling: What is it?
Freight transportation modeling includes freight transportation system models. This is the focus of this subcommittee. This modeling area also covers individual models of freight decisions (such as mode choice) that can be used in system-level models.
