model development

Wisconsin Department of Transportation

Develop a best practice, policy-sensitive statewide model that enables the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) to improve its ability to forecast passenger and freight traffic by mode along key corridors in the State.

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.
