Integrating Management of Truck and Rail Systems in Los Angeles

This project will develop models to optimize the balance of freight demand across rail and truck modes. The year 2 research will use the year 1 data collected on rail operations in Southern California to perform a detailed simulation analysis to determine the capacity of the rail network. Given this capacity the project will determine the amount of freight flow that can be shifted from truck to rail. The project will also build a model to estimate the increase in freight flow that can be accommodated for a given rail capacity expansion
