I have made two trips to Mexico this year, visiting Tijuana, Guadalajara, San Luis Potosi, Irapuato, Leon, Mexico City, and Monterrey.

The Houston-Galveston area's freight transportation systems, seaports, airports, intermodal facilities, and the waterways, highways, and rail corridors that connect them, are key elements of the

In 2010, the Florida Chamber Foundation, in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), released the Florida Trade and Logistics Study, a first-of-its-kind look at trade flows and related logistics activity in Florida.

Georgia Department of Transportation

Develop a comprehensive freight and logistics statewide plan for the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) to help improve and grow the State’s freight and logistics related industries, and ultimately increase future economic benefits for the State of Georgia.

Freight Demand Model Development and Application

CS has continuously advanced the state of the practice in freight and truck modeling. Our methods combine the best of commodity flow models, vehicle-based travel demand models, operational simulations and modal diversion models. We integrate these and other tools for an approach that considers mobility, economic impact, benefit-cost, air quality and safety analysis. Our current initiatives include the development of advanced regional freight models that incorporate supply chain and urban logistics practices in the modeling framework.

Port Planning and Market Forecasting

State, regional and local agencies face challenges in the effort to alleviate port congestion, especially in planning for goods movement and alternative passenger transit modes. Cambridge Systematics brings expertise in the full spectrum of skills required for solutions: master planning, market assessment and forecasts for cargo and cruise operations, landside access planning, economic impact analysis, financial planning, intelligent transportation systems planning, strategic planning, and environmental impact assessment.

State, Regional and Local Freight Planning

As changes in the US and global economy drive up freight demand and stress freight transportation systems, Cambridge Systematics helps states, regions and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) plan to accommodate this growth—and capitalize on it through priority-driven investments. Our work allows agencies to understand the link between freight efficiency and economic vitality, improve freight operations while meeting mobility and livability goals, and implement projects and programs that address evolving needs.

It sometimes seems that people believe self-driving vehicles are destined to happen, as if there exists some natural, inevitable, evolutionary force, always driving technology forward. I fear there is no such force.

Can models be developed that consider logistic paths used by freight?
  

An innovative mesoscale prototype model that is capable of considering the logistics paths used by freight has recently been developed for the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP).
