Freight Transportation Performance Measures
A new report, released by the National Cooperative Freight Research Program (NCFRP), developed a set of measures to assess the performance of the U.S. freight transportation system in an easy-to-read freight system report card. The report examined performance measures that capture the efficiency, capacity, safety, security, infrastructure condition, congestion, energy, and environmental effects of the freight transportation system. The performance measures support investment, operations, and policy decisions involving freight transportation at the local, regional, national, and global levels.
