Measuring Improvements in the Movement of Highway and Intermodal Freight

This task involved further evaluation of first-tier indicators identified in Task 1. Based on this work, a small set of indicators worthy of further analysis and development by FHWA is recommended in this report.

This report presents the results of both Tasks 1 and 2.

Report Organization

The remainder of this report is organized as follows:

Section 2: Overview of Indicators Identified in Previous Efforts —This section provides a summary and assessment of various studies and conferences that attempted to develop freight performance measures. It categorizes potential measures and assesses their potential usefulness for FHWA and other highway-related organizations.

Section 3: Recommendations — This section recommends performance measures worthy of further investigation by FHWA. It begins by grouping potential measures into four categories: 1) potentially valuable (first-tier) indicators; 2) second-tier (less valuable) indicators; 3) corridor or facility measures; and 4) not-useful measures. First-tier indicators are then evaluated along various criteria and the indicators with the most potential are selected.

Appendix A: Reviews of Individual Efforts —This section provides a synopsis and assessment of each of the prior studies and conferences reviewed.

Appendix B: Contacts —This section lists individuals contacted for this research.
