A Guidebook for Freight Transportation Planning Using Truck GPS Data

The proposed guidebook will investigate (and develop case studies) of how and if the available global positioning system (GPS) data can be used to: (1) Develop performance measures for transportation facilities; (2) Provide key performance indicators for intermodal terminals in TN; (3) Develop truck trip generation rates for different intermodal and trans-modal terminals; (4) Analyze TN truck corridors with a focus on travel time and flow; (5) Analyze inter- and intra-city travel patterns; (6) Provide data to support development, calibration and validation of Tennessee's (TN's) State and Metropolitan Planning Organization's (MPO's) travel demand models (both for the freight and passenger component).
