TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET that discusses research from National Cooperative Freight Research Program (NCFRP) Research Report 37: Using Commodity Flow Survey Microdata and Other Establishment Data to Estimate the Generation of Freight, Freight Trips, and Service Trips: Guidebook.

This webinar focuses on the use of Freight Trip Generation (FTG) models to manage infrastructure in different urban contexts. Transportation engineers and city planners need to make decisions and develop programs that facilitate freight activity and ensure appropriate curb management because of the continuing growth in population, residential and commercial development in urban areas, and e-commerce. At larger geographical scales, there is also a need to get an idea about the amounts of cargo that are produced to ensure that transportation infrastructure is adequate. New FTG models provide a mechanism to estimate FTG at the establishment-level and any other level of geography.
