1 MEASURING THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM FROM THE SUPPLY CHAIN PERSPECTIVE: WORKSHOP OUTCOMES & NEXT STEPS JOSEPH BRYAN, PARSONS BRINCKERHOFF TRB ANNUAL MEETING, JANUARY 2013

2 Measuring the Transportation System from a Supply Chain Perspective TRB Conference, Irvine CA, July 2012 Built on TRB SR 304 on national transport data strategy SHRP2 Funded Attendees:

3 Conference Objectives Review current supply chain applications and data uses for the public sector Explore the decision-making processes involved in public-sector investments and the value of enhanced supply chain information Identify potential examples of specific public uses of supply chain data as well as the types of users who could benefit from its availability Identify future actions and research to further this approach

4 Conference Output Circular E-C169 Conference Synopsis Research Themes Supply Chain View Uses for Planning & Performance Management Case Studies in Public Decisions Data Sources Warehouse Staging Data Steps Forward

5 Supply Chain View Systems perspective: – Commodity, value, volume, market shifts – Original source, ultimate destination, intermediate routing – Production to consumption to recycling Recognizes freight crosses jurisdictions, modes, industries; constantly changes for higher service and lower cost

6 Supply Chain View Different from traditional public perspective – Mode specific, usually bounded by regional geography Calls for broader, interrelated, intermodal view: – New inputs: cost, routing, staging, etc. – Making sure activity nodes work in concert and viewed as linked activities – Adjusting analysis techniques, ultimately for better transportation system investments

7 Adding Public Value Systems management Regional & global demand dynamics Emergency response and resiliency Improving economic competitiveness Informed policy Bottleneck identification and significance Viable emissions reduction strategies Common terminology with stakeholders Complementary approach for DOT, DOD, DOC

8 Relevant Data Sources Freight flow data (FAF, T RANSEARCH, PIERS): useful but thus far unlinked Supply chain data: – Nielsen TDLinx DC-retail relationships – Chainalytics bid package compilation – Cass freight payment data – Various real estate industry resources – Costs: tlrates.com, SMC3 Rateware, STB Waybill – Structures: NCFRP Report 14, others  Plus: wholesale facets embedded in CFS Many are challenging for state & local level, more feasible at federal level

9 Supply Chain Structures: Linked Flows Source: NHI General enough to be public Good enough to be distinctive Specific enough for transportation purposes  Much less than for logistics management  Complexity can mislead: we need some, not all of it

10 Dynamics and Needs Source: Tompkins Supply Chain Consortium Supply chains highly dynamic Makes transportation highly dynamic Transportation needs relatively focused – 5 elements  Plus performance The way forward should be equally focused – Basic elements – Resources we can reach – Payoff for industry Transportation Needs to Know (NCHRP 20-83): Sourcing patterns Flow destination Routing and staging Flow volume Value density

11 Steps Forward Build out basic planning Grid for supply chain view Determine, secure, adapt data to fit view Identify and engage groups benefitting from common approach to supply chain freight data –Public sector transportation organizations –Private sector stakeholder organizations Explore pooled research Develop and Populate Strategic Research Plan
