A Multi-Modal Freight Safety, Security and Environmental Routing Tool

The research will produce a geographic information system (GIS) framework to identify and categorize safety, security, and environmental risk along multimodal transportation networks. The categories will be useful for situational awareness analysis and risk assessment. The project will develop GIS routing algorithms with enhanced capability to minimize risks associated with freight transport while taking efficiency and cost into consideration. This area represents a significant contribution to both the state-of-the-art and industry practice, and serves as a foundation for future comprehensive transportation planning.
