intermodal_home The Coalition’s Member Agencies have designated primary focus areas where coordination among multiple modes and multiple jurisdictions would be highly beneficial in furthering transportation improvements.

A committee was established for each focus area, and this page contains highlights of the Intermodal Movement of Freight and Passengers Committee. News items are shown below, and the menu on the right contains links to additional Intermodal Movement of Freight and Passengers Committee information.

The Coalition focuses its efforts on the long-distance movement of freight and passengers – the travel that stretches through multiple jurisdictions and, likely, across multiple modes. The Intermodal Movement of Freight and Passengers Committee is actively helping states with transportation issues that they cannot address on their own, and when resolved, would ultimately benefit freight and passengers in their states and in neighboring states.

New White Paper: Freight Performance Measures

The Coalition, in conjunction with FHWA, recently demonstrated the feasibility of measuring supply chain performance across multistate jurisdictions, identified future data and analytical methodology needs, and outlined a set of general and programmatic recommendations for public sector consideration.  The project examined freight fluidity using three performance measures (travel time, travel time reliability and cost) across five representative supply chains (Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, Food Products, Agriculture, and Electronics).  The study also identified short-term solutions for defining the most critical trade lanes, industries, and commodity flows and longer-term solutions for improved data and multimodal approaches; and, inputs for a guide on how to implement MAP-21/FAST Act.  The resulting white paper and presentations can be found at the following links:
