Institutional Arrangements in the Freight Transportation System

The freight industry is a unique blend of private- and public-sector organizations, each with its own objectives and constraints.  Political and jurisdictional boundaries do not define market relationships, but can impact them.  Effective freight policy requires coordination and collaboration among public and private interests. New forms of public-private, private-private, and public-public arrangements are needed to address challenges that do not conform to government jurisdictions, geographic boundaries, or traditional dividing lines between government and business. The objective of this project is to describe successful and promising institutional arrangements for improving freight movement, now and in the future.  <br /></font><font size="3"><br /></font></div>
