Presentation Transcript

  1. Freight Analysis Framework version 3 (FAF3) __________ Talking Freight Webinar October 2010

  2. Understanding Freight Transportation • How does freight movement affect congestion, infrastructure, safety, and the environment? • How does congestion, delay, and cost affect freight movement? • How do shifts in the economy, activity among regions, and global trade affect freight movement? • How will policies affect freight movement and what are the consequences? • Where can investments be made to improve operations or increase capacity?

  3. To Understand We Need to Know • How much& what freight moves from place to place? • Weight • Value • Commodity • Where& how is freight moving? • Origin & destination • Route used • Mode of transportation • When is freight being carried? • Season • Time of day

  4. The Big Picture • FAF3 integrates data from a number of sources to provide: • A data matrix with tonnage and value of regional freight flows by commodity and mode for 2007, with forecasts to 2040, and annual provisional updates • An assignment of tons to freight-hauling trucks on individual highway segments

  5. FAF3 Details • Value and weight for all domestic shipments, exports, and imports • 8Domestic modes (truck, rail, water, air, multiple modes and mail, pipeline, other & unknown, and no domestic mode) • 7 Foreign modes • 123 Domestic regions • 8 International regions (Canada, Mexico, & 6 groupings of countries based on UN definitions) • 43 Commodity classes (2-digit SCTG codes)

  6. Canada Eastern Asia Europe South, Central Africa & Western Asia South-Eastern Asia Rest of Mexico And Oceana Americas FAF3 Regions

  7. The Bottom Line • FAF provides a comprehensive national picture of freight flows and baseline forecasts to support policy studies • FAF shows states and regions their major trading partners with the volumes and sources of through traffic at a corridor level • Local specific planning and project analysis usually requires supplemental data collection to provide local detail

  8. FAF3 Data Extraction Tool • A web based data summary tool that enables FAF3 users to easily extract the specific data elements they require from the regional database • Features: • all levels of detail • tabular output and sorting capability • download results in .csv format

  13. FAF3 Timeline • FAF3.0 - July 2010 • Regional freight flow data 2007 • Data summary and extraction tool • FAF3.1 - October 2010 • Revisions to FAF3.0 2007 data • Forecasts from 2015 to 2040 • Network assignment (maps) • Annual provisional update for 2009 • FAF3.2 - 2011 • Reprocess 2002 & 1997 estimates • Online mapping capability

  14. We Rely on Customer Feedback • Do the estimates we publish align with local observations? • What would make existing freight data resources more usable? • What are the major freight issues you and your partners are trying to address?

  15. Accessing FAF3 Data • FHWA Website: http://ops.fhwa.dot.gov/freight/freight_analysis/faf/index.htm • DOT Freight Website: http://www.freight.dot.gov/ • Oak Ridge National Lab Website: http://cta-gis.ornl.gov/faf/
