freight demand

March 2013

This is one of a series of reports produced as a result of the Transportation Energy Futures (TEF) project, a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)-sponsored multi-agency project initiated to identify underexplored strategies for abating greenhouse gases (GHG) and reducing petroleum dependence related to transportation.

Economic and Industry Competitiveness Assessments

Seaports, port authorities, regional coalitions and others look to Cambridge Systematics for expertise in developing forecasts and analysis of trade and freight flow activity. Our work identifies regional, national and international trade and transportation trends and assesses how those trends correspond to freight demand. We also develop competitive assessments for regions and municipalities to help agencies understand which industry clusters are the best candidates for attraction and retention as part of an overall economic development strategy.
