Freight Resiliency

"Freight Resiliency" refers to the ability of the freight transportation system and the supply chain to absorb the impacts of an incident and rebound in the aftermath of an incident. Incidents can include both planned disruptions (e.g., a major construction project requiring a road closure) and unplanned disruptions (e.g., a natural or man-made disaster). "Freight resiliency" can refer to both the short-term flexibility of the system in the face of unexpected, rapid change, and to the long-term adaptability of the system to external changes in technology and in the economy. Through this project, the I-95 Corridor Coalition will promote FSR planning to states, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) and municipalities and foster coordination in the development and implementation of coordinated components of resiliency plans throughout the corridor, in particular to address disruptions across a wide geography.
