Examining the Value of Travel Time Reliability for Freight Transportation to Support Freight Planning and Decision-Making

Given the growing demand in freight transportation, the emerging needs to better understand freight behavior for better policy and investment decisions, and the increasing role of reliability in freight transportation, the proposed research holds the promise in advancing freight planning practices and research. It will provide some insights on how the freight system users value travel time reliability in their transportation choices. The study results will facilitate local, state, and national agencies in evaluating and prioritizing alternative investment and policy strategies that promote the best use of the freight transportation system and support the dynamic demand of the industries.
