MARITIME IMFORMATION

DELIVERY SYSTEM

BACKGROUND

Upper Midwest Freight Corridor Study

(Mississippi Valley Freight Corridors Coalition)

To establish a regional approach for

improving freight transportation in the

Upper Midwest

To establish multi-state, multi-

jurisdictional partnership of public and

private sector stakeholder interests.

To study short- and long-term issues

surrounding anticipated increases in

freight movement and impacts on the region’s

infrastructure and economic health.

  • BACKGROUND

  • Upper Midwest Freight Corridor Study

  • (Mississippi Valley Freight Corridors Coalition)

  • Performance metrics in freight

  • transportation

  • To assess the following for all

  • transportation modes:

  • Demand for freight transportation

  • Infrastructure and system capacities

  • Impact of government regulation

  • Ongoing data collection efforts:

  • Midwest FreightView (MWFV)

ISSUES TO BE ADDRESSED BY THE SYSTEM

l Jobs

l Economic impact of Great Lakes shipping

l The value of shipping to states, cities regions, etc.

l Environmental impacts/benefits compared to other modes

l Shipper savings associated with GL MTS

l Congestion effects of other modes in comparison to GL MTS

l Competition effects of Maritime Transportation

and rates in contrast to other modes

l Safety issues with diverting freight

traffic to GL MTS

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR DATA ACQUISITION

l Cargo flows 

l Facilities (e.g., docks, terminals, locks, etc.)

l Linking Great Lakes maritime freight movements and the

economy of the Great Lakes Region

l Environmental Data (air, water, ballast)  

l Data to support air and water pollution reductions based on diverting traffic from highway

l Data to support comparative analysis of Great Lakes

Fleet vs. Railroads and Trucks

l Compiled lists of current sources of data

MAIN ELEMENTS OF THE SYSTEM

l Detailed data repository for vessel movements, port functions

commodity flows, economic activity, environmental

impacts, etc.

l An Internet-based GIS data viewer (Citrix Metaframe Delivery)

l An Internet-based information delivery site for prepared maps,

tables, graphics, text, etc.

l An information clearinghouse and centralized data facility

to furnish links to other information resources, (private

firms, government agencies, universities, etc.)

l A data exchange to support user inquiries

and furnish information on demand

DATA COLLECTED AND ADDED TO REPOSITORY, Cont.

Port Operations Data such as Tonnages, Commodities

transshipped (Lake Carriers Assn.), Vessels Serviced,

Equipment, etc.

Baseline 2002 commodity flows through the Saint Lawrence

Seaway and Great Lakes System obtained from the FHWA

Freight Analysis Framework estimated from 2002 Commodity

Flow Survey Data. This data set provided the research team

with a skeleton framework upon which to add

subsequent flow data as it is obtained.
