Understanding Freight Behavior in the Pacific Northwest: An Evaluation and Application of EROAD Data to Freight Demand and Forecast Modeling

In summary, this research’s objective will be achieved through the application of a private data source acquired as part of an ongoing study with EROAD. EROAD is a company that develops and implements technology to modernize traditional paper-based systems within the trucking industry. As part of this modernization, EROAD collects the data used for modeling and forecasting freight movements. However, EROAD data has yet to be used for such an application. This will be accomplished through (1) a comprehensive existing state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice as it relates to freight data, both in terms of analysis and collection, (2) a massage of EROAD data and conduct statistical analyses for freight movement analysis, and (3) identify freight movements and detailed supply-chain analyses of key commodities. It’s envisaged that two journal manuscripts will result from this work.
