As part of the SHRP2 Tuesdays Webinar Series, TRB conducted a webinar on January 21, 2014 from 2:00pm to 3:30pm ET that explored the SHRP 2 research that documents the process used to improve the practice of freight demand modeling and freight data. The webinar highlighted the fundamental changes in freight modeling, data, and data collection that could help public and private sector decision-makers make better and more informed decisions. The Research Report
and the companion Strategic Plan
are available on the TRB website.

While the state of freight demand modeling and freight data has been relatively stable during the past several decades, promising developments based on new information technologies may greatly improve transportation planners’ access to freight data. Examples include global positioning system data from trucks and (potentially) private supply chain data that could be aggregated for public sector planning purposes.
This webinar is intended for a diverse audience of academia, public sector practitioners, and private industry interested in furthering the science and application of freight demand modeling and forecasting.
