SPR-4508: Forecasting Freight Logistics Needs & INDOT Plans for the Needs

The objective is to understand INDOT’s role in enabling Indiana’s industry level competitiveness, and forecasting how this is expected to evolve in the next 20 years. The study will seek input from industry representatives to develop this perspective and examine Indiana’s competitiveness relative to neighboring states. The study will include opportunities to leverage multimodal terminals when appropriate. The goal is to link to quantifiable metrics, but temper their interpretation with qualitative feedback from industry participants.
