Measuring Improvements in the Movement of Highway and Intermodal Freight

REPORT: Transportation System Performance Measures: Applicability of Indicators to Goods Movement

SPONSORS: California Department of Transportation (Caltrans)

AUTHORS: Booz-Allen & Hamilton

PARTICIPANTS: Received input from Caltrans staff, including the team that developed the freight module of the California Transportation Plan (CTP) and the System Measures Working Group

DATE: June 30, 1999

SUMMARY:

This report addresses the applicability of performance indicators to goods movement as part of the Performance Measurement initiative of Caltrans. It concludes that it is feasible for the State and regional partners to apply performance measures that relate to freight movement. Based on an evaluation of outcomes from the State’s Transportation System Performance Measures report, the authors select six outcomes as applicable to goods movement: mobility/accessibility, reliability, economic well-being, environmental quality, safety and security, and equity.

PERFORMANCE MEASURES PRESENTED:

Of the “outcomes” and indicators identified from the State report, the following are most directly related to freight performance and productivity:

Outcome

Indicator

Mobility/Accessibility

Travel time

Delay (lost time)

Accessibility to intermodal facilities

Reliability

Standard deviation of travel time

Safety and Security

Safety rates

- Accident rate

- Fatality rate

Economic Well-Being

Final demand (the value of all transportation-related goods and services delivered to the final customer) generated by transportation projects

ASSESSMENT:

These indicators all have some relationship to the productivity of freight movements, with the mobility/accessibility and reliability measures most directly useful. Other outcome goals identified as relevant to goods movement — environmental quality and equity — do not really address the issue of productivity.
