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’s Truck Parking activities span an array of interest areas to economically and viably serve diverse geographical situations. During the past several years, these activities have included investigation of truck parking technologies; truck parking applications which are flexible and adaptable, and useable within states’ existing system platforms; ability to reach the user with well-timed truck parking availability information; holding a truck parking workshop for the entire Corridor; and conducting a demonstration pilot project, along with an evaluation of the project and lessons learned.
Commercial Vehicle Operations Online Portal on Coalition Website
I-95 Corridor Coalition has developed an online Portal to access information of Motor Carrier – Commercial Vehicle Operating, Credentialing, Registration, Taxation, and Permitting Requirements, Commercial Driver Licensing, Traveler Information, Truck Parking and Weigh Stations, Tolling Information, and Motor Truck Associations for each of the I-95 Coalition Member States from Maine to Florida.

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:
- “Freight Performance Measurement – Measuring the Performance of Supply Chains across Multistate Jurisdictions.” (pdf)
- “Measuring Supply Chain Performance with Fluidity Data” (pdf). Presented at the TRB 5th International Transportation Systems Performance Measurement and Data Conference, June 2015
- “Measuring Supply Chains for Freight Fluidity from a Corridor Perspective” (pdf). Presented at the TRB Advancing Freight Fluidity Performance Measures Workshop, December 2015
Member States’ Fast Act-Compliant Freight Planning Activities
In mid-2017, at the request of its members, the I-95 Corridor Coalition staff conducted extensive guided interviews with 17 Coalition member Departments of Transportation (DOTs) from 16 states and Washington, DC, to assess the status of their freight planning activities in response to the requirements of the 2015 Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act). The Issues and Recommendations report can be viewed here.
StrongPorts and Marine Highways White Board Animation Videos
The Maritime Administration is pleased to announce the launch of the new StrongPorts and Marine Highways white board animation videos. These four videos show the importance of ports to our Nation’s economy, the challenges ports face, how the Maritime Administration can assist stakeholders through the StrongPorts Program and lastly, how we can expand the use of our waterways, rivers, Great Lakes, and Coastlines for movement of freight.

Super Storm Sandy After Action Review Final Report
A core mission of the I-95 Corridor Coalition, since its inception, has been cross-border/multi-jurisdictional response coordination for major traffic incidents. This program activity remains a high priority, and encompasses major transportation system impacts caused by any significant event, including those caused by severe weather.
As part of this program, the Coalition conducted a Super Storm Sandy After Action Review. Read More.
