2013 Delmarva Freight Study

The Delmarva Freight Study is a multi-state, multi-MPO effort to develop a comprehensive, multi-modal evaluation of the freight transportation system and its operations along the Delmarva Peninsula. Using detailed commodity flow data along with a three-level modeling approach (National, Regional and Local), we can capture the overall performance of the freight system and its future constraints. In addition, we will be able to test the impacts of decisions such as infrastructure investments, changes in regulations and modal shift impacts.

2013 Delmarva Freight Summit

The Delmarva Freight Summit was a half day forum held on June 26th that brings together both public and private sector freight professionals to focus on the needs and interests of freight movement across the Delmarva Peninsula. Below are the presentations and handouts that were given at the summit.
