Commercial Freight and the Resilience of the BOSFOLK Corridor

The resilience of a corridor can be defined as its ability to maintain its function during or to recover from a terrorist attack or other incident. While transportation corridors can be viewed as highly resilient due to the fact the numerous alternatives routes exist, these alternative routes are not always available to commercial trucks. Restrictions of weight and height of overhead structures as well as the fact that they may be carrying hazardous materials limits the route choices for these commercial vehicles. This literature review will identify the relevant background material for exploring the resilience of the BOSFOLK corridor from the perspective of impact on commercial freight movement by truck.
