Freight Policy Institute

The overall goal of this project is to create a Freight Policy Transportation Institute (FPTI), to foster scholarship and research in the transportation policy arena, allowing lead researchers to be productive in needed areas of policy analysis while coordinating other research efforts in the region, so as to minimize duplication of effort and waste of resources. Washington State University has been developing important research and education programs that address many aspects of these issues critical to both the state and the region, particularly in the departments of civil engineering, bio-systems engineering and the school of economic sciences. New, creative research has been undertaken in the area of driver safety (sleep deprivation, driver training, etc.).
