2 O AK R IDGE N ATIONAL L ABORATORY U. S. D EPARTMENT OF E NERGY Rail Routing is the most challenging, requiring detailed information on the railroads involved and on their interlining practices. Generating Commodity Flows for the Base Case: Key Issues A) Estimating Annual O-D-C Movements: Rail and Water Movements can be Aggregated from Waybills and Waterborne commerce data (Note: Waybills are based on expanded samples) Truck Flow Data is Limited at Best – it Needs to Be Simulated Data on truck drays is limited, making it a challenge not only to assign water and rail flows to correct county origins/destinations on a fully nationwide basis, but also to extract remaining truck movements. B) Traffic Routing
