Maximizing Freight Movements in Local Food Markets - Phase Two

Since the initial grant request in 2009 for work conducted in 2010-2011, regional food transportation and logistics has emerged as a central issue in food systems planning. This project proposes to continue the exploration of regional food supply chains, particularly in relation to aggregation, transportation, and logistics. This will help to determine where regional supply chains still exist and where they may benefit from re-investment and rebuilding. Thus far, the research has identified how the local and regional food supply and distribution system functions for three commodities in the Upper Midwest states and begins to suggest means by which local food transportation movements can become more efficient.
