1 Freight Facilities and their Intermodal Connections BTS Webinar Series Olu Ajayi Michael Sprung Bureau of Transportation Statistics Research and Innovative Technology Administration United States Department of Transportation August 28, 2013

2 2 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Outline  Freight in MAP-21  Need for Connectivity Data  Design Questions  Approach  Data Sources  Challenges  Database Table Structure  Select Statistics  Future Tasks  Questions/Suggestions

3 3 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration An Emphasis on Freight in MAP-21  National Freight Network  National Freight Strategic Plan  Develop or improve data and tools  Consider improvements to existing freight flow data collection  Freight Conditions and Performance Report  National Freight Advisory Committee

4 4 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration BTS Specific Freight Provisions  MAP-21 Sec Intermodal transportation database “…the Director shall establish and maintain a transportation database for all modes of transportation.” (c) Contents - The database established under this section shall include – (1) “information on the volumes and patterns of movement of goods…;” (2) “information on the volumes and patterns of movement of people…” (3) “Information on the location and connectivity of transportation facilities and services;”

5 5 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Existing Freight Data Products  BTS freight data □ Commodity Flow Survey (CFS) □ TransBorder Freight Data □ Airline T100 Market and Segment Data □ Transportation Services Index (freight)  Additional freight data sources □ Waterborne Commerce of the United States – USACE □ Rail Carload Waybill Sample – STB □ Petroleum Imports/Exports & Movements – EIA □ Freight Analysis Framework (FAF) – FHWA

6 6 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration

7 7 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration What is it? A database of freight transportation facilities and their intermodal connections. Provides information on facility type, facility name, physical address, spatial location and existence of intermodal connections.

8 8 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Initial Questions  What type of facilities should be included? □ Airports, rail terminals, ports and waterway facilities, trucking terminals, warehouses, distribution centers and pipeline terminals  To what degree of specificity?  Assessing connectivity (what constitutes connectivity?)  Measuring connectivity (proximity of connections)  How frequently should the database be updated?

9 9 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Approach  Types of Facilities □ Waterway facilities – Dock level □ Airports – FAA’s cargo service airports and airports reporting 100 or more revenue tons of freight □ Rail – All freight rail terminals □ Pipeline – Pipeline terminals and refineries □ Warehouses and truck terminals  Connectivity - An intermodal connection exists at a freight facility/terminal: □ If two or more modes of transportation meet to interchange freight, either directly or through intermediate storage.  Proximity - A connection exists between modes if □ They serve the same facility/terminal, or □ Serve facilities within a one mile radius

10 10 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Data Sources  Bureau of Transportation’s National Transportation Atlas Database - contains physical and spatial information on transportation facilities and intermodal connectors.  US Army Corp of Engineers Port Facilities Data Table - contains a list of all facility types that may be reported as the origin or destination of commercial waterborne conveyances.  Federal Aviation Administration All Cargo Airports and Public Use Airports Dataset  FHWA’s National Highway System (NHS) Intermodal Connector Data – contains data on intermodal transportation facilities and connections to the NHS  Oak Ridge National Laboratory Intermodal Terminals Dataset  MapSearch Commercial Dataset of Pipeline Terminals

11 11 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Challenges  Matching records from multiple data sources  Missing information (addresses, latitude/longitude)  Identifying connectors  Minimizing duplication

12 12 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Basic Table Structure  Unique ID  Facility Name  Facility Type  Street Address, City, State and Zip code  FIPS code  Latitude  Longitude  Air Connection (Y/N)  Highway Connection (Y/N)  Railway Connection (Y/N)  Pipeline Connection (Y/N)  Water Connection (Y/N)  # of Connections

13 13 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration

14 14 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Select Stats  Total of 9,332 freight facilities □ 5,092 water facilities □ 1,609 rail facilities □ 1,740 pipeline facilities □ 735 trucking and warehouse facilities □ 156 airports

17 17 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Freight Facilities by Number of Connections

18 18 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Future Tasks  Review and validation of current draft table  Review and inclusion of more freight facilities □ 7,000 waterway facilities □ 10,000 warehouse and trucking terminals □ 100 pipeline terminals □ More airports  Linking basic facilities table with information on other physical, operational, economic and environmental attributes to enhance current modeling, analytical and decision making capabilities  Geospatial visualization of the data

19 19 U.S. Department of Transportation Research and Innovative Technology Administration Questions and/or Suggestions?
