Investigation of Freight Data and Operations in Nebraska

This research is proposed in light of the importance of efficient freight movement for the economic well-being of Nebraska and the emphasis on freight planning in the recent transportation legislation titled "Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act" (MAP-21). The objectives of this research project are to identify Nebraska's freight data needs, systematically evaluate available Nebraska-specific freight data, distinguish the needs fulfilled by available data and identify gaps in data, and develop a plan to address Nebraska's unmet freight data needs.
