Warehouse Location and Freight Attraction in the Greater El Paso Region

The objectives of this project are to develop a methodological approach to analyze current and future warehouse/distribution center locations along border regions that can provide greater accessibility and mobility for increasing bi-national freight flows and that are economically feasible. In addition, this project seeks to identify warehouse/distribution center locations that have the potential to improve safety. To accomplish these objectives they propose the following set of work aims to identify current and planned locations of warehouse/distribution centers (through a survey), to identify potential locations that meet the criteria of warehouse/distribution center and that promote increased accessibility, mobility and safety (Zone - Land Use by code), and to assess the monetary feasibility (costs) of the potential location.
