Freight Corridors

Over the past years, the I‑95 Corridor Coalition has commissioned a range of freight transportation studies aimed at understanding freight movements and diagnosing freight transportation problems. The Coalition has focused on freight transportation because it is critical to the economic well being of the region. The I-95 region is one of the most densely populated and economically productive areas of the United States. If the Coalition region were a separate country, it would be the third to fourth largest economy in the world. In this economy, cost-effective freight transportation is critically important in keeping down the cost of doing business and the cost of living. Without cost-effective freight transportation, the increasingly high-tech and high-value goods and services produced and traded in the region will be less competitive in national and global markets, and the economic development of the region will slow.
