Progress ReportThe Great Lakes Maritime Information Delivery System The University of Toledo November 7, 2006 Intermodal Transportation Institute
GREAT LAKES 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.
GREAT LAKES MARITIME IMFORMATION DELIVERY SYSTEM • 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)
GREAT LAKES MARITIME IMFORMATION DELIVERY SYSTEM GREAT LAKES DATA WORKSHOP: JUNE 9, 2006 l US Army Corps of Engineers l Transport Canada l Lakes Carriers Association l NOAA l Detroit Port Authority l Port of Duluth l Great Lakes Commission l St. Lawrence Seaway l US Maritime Administration l University of Toledo l American Great Lakes Ports Association l Canadian Chamber of Maritime Commerce l University of Wisconsin-Superior (GLMRI) l University of Minnesota Duluth (GLMRI)
GREAT LAKES MARITIME IMFORMATION DELIVERY SYSTEM 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
GREAT LAKES MARITIME IMFORMATION DELIVERY SYSTEM 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
GREAT LAKES MARITIME IMFORMATION DELIVERY SYSTEM 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
GREAT LAKES MARITIME IMFORMATION DELIVERY SYSTEM DATA COLLECTED AND ADDED TO GIS REPOSITORY Intrastate Employment patterns for each commodity type by SIC, NAICS, (Demographics Plus, Inc. Business Counts Database) Population and Socioeconomic data representing market demand within the region Port Locations—U.S. (BTS National Transportation Atlas) Waterway Network—Great Lakes and Inland Waterways (Army Corps of Engineers) Navigation Facilities, Locks, etc.
GREAT LAKES MARITIME IMFORMATION DELIVERY SYSTEM DATA COLLECTED AND ADDED TO REPOSITORY, Cont. Dock Locations and attributes: US and Canada 1. I.D. code number 10. Latitude/Longitude 2. Name 11. Operator 3. Location 12. Owner 4. Address / Phone 13. Purpose 5. County 14. Slip length / width / depth 6. State/Province 15. Vessel loading / unloading equipment 7. Waterway 16. Vessel loading / unloading speed 8. Port 17. Railway connections 9. Mile (river locations) 18. Notes of interest
GREAT LAKES MARITIME IMFORMATION DELIVERY SYSTEM 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.
