Collaborating Toward the IT Highway: Linking Public and Private Investments in Intelligent Transportation Systems to Freight Flows and Supply Chain Performance

This work will examine the collaborative effort of public and private investments in intelligent transportation system (ITS) and how these investments impact freight flow system performance. Previous research has suggested benefits of implementing ITS, however few studies have developed metrics for the evaluation of system performance. In this study, metrics will be developed for system performance. Primary data will be collected from both public and private enterprises to examine performance outcome improvements gained by investing in ITS technology for freight. These outcomes will be analyzed to identify key success factors to leverage public and private investments in ITS for freight to further develop the system. It is envisioned that reporting quantified benefits from this work will support the collaboration of stakeholders in regions not currently using ITS to promote future investments in the system.
