There is no fee to attend this webinar and other webinars in the SHRP 2 Series; however, participants must register in advance. A certificate for 1.5 Professional Development Hours (PDH) will be provided to attendees who register and attend the webinar as an individual.

Efficient freight movement is essential to the economic competitiveness and vitality of communities and regions. Freight operations also have a significant impact on air quality, land use, sustainability, and environmental conditions. Understanding how freight providers will use the transportation system may help practitioners consider reasonable future scenarios, sound investment decisions, and public safety. Effective freight planning requires multi-jurisdictional and multi-agency collaboration across local and state boundaries. The intended audience for this webinar is transportation planners at state DOTs and MPOs.

Webinar Presenters:

  • Matt Hardy, American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO)
  • Spencer Stevens, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
  • Crystal Jones, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
  • Donald B. Ludlow, Cambridge Systematics, Inc.
