Conditions in the goods movement industry have changed over the last several years. The 2050 Freight Industry Level Forecasts Study developed updated information on current and projected freight demand through 2050 for use in the freight planning activities of the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA). This effort followed two previous NJTPA freight planning studies: the 2040 Freight Industry Level Forecasts Study
(completed in 2012) and the Regional Freight Commodity Profiles Study
(completed in 2015).
The results of this work will serve as background for the NJTPA's next Long Range Transportation Plan as well as freight planning and subregional planning studies. Cambridge Systematics, Inc. with WSP, Inc., and Cheng Solutions LLC completed this project for NJTPA.
One of the key products of this work is a set of 28 stand-alone freight profiles for the NJTPA region, each of the NJTPA's subregions and the top regional commodity bundles. The profiles can be accessed below.
