Freight Forecast

The NJTPA Freight Forecasting Tool (FFT) is an interactive Microsoft Excel-based forecasting tool that allows the user to test various economic scenarios as well as calculate the specific impacts of economic or transportation drivers. The outputs include regional and county level summaries of freight activity for the forecast years and scenarios selected by the user as well as a truck trip table ready to be input into the NJRTM-E (NJTPA’s Travel Demand Model). The FFT was developed as part of the 2040 Freight Industry Level Forecasts Study and further enhanced as part of the Regional Freight Commodity Profiles Study.
