Project 10.4
Freight Task Force – Year 2

Year 2 activities of the Freight Task Force were pursued to continue the momentum of the Year 1 work. Specifically the activities were designed to support the active engagement of Freight Task Force members, conduct best practice (and practical) research on project funding opportunities, help refine the truck parking concept so that it best fits NWP needs, and conduct exploratory research on truck platooning for the NWP corridor. Each of these activities is aimed at getting the coalition closer to implementation of those projects that are most important to the seven NWP member states.

The work products of the Year 2 activities included:
