Freight Efficiency

The Freight Efficiency work of the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) is designed to identify and advance regional initiatives to promote sustainable economic development, minimize traffic congestion, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions through more efficient goods movement and technology.

The work takes place in collaboration with other freight focused groups, including the I-95 Corridor Coalition. The work also involved the commissioning of a comprehensive study of freight flows in the TCI region by Dr. James Winebrake of the Rochester Institute of Technology. This led to the proposal of a subsequent study on energy and emissions implications of freight movement in the region.
