SPR-4411: Last Mile Delivery and Route Planning for Freight

Planning for growth through capacity addition requires anticipation of future needs, driven by the rapid growth in Indiana of manufacturing facilities, impacts of autonomous long and short haul delivery hubs, locations for accumulation of trucks for platooning and other freight related growth initiatives. We will develop a scenario based planning tool that will explore last mile demand scenarios in anticipation of future demand. Data from existing INDOT and local sources will be integrated into the tool.
