To increase understanding of the goods movement issues, constraints, and opportunities facing the state now and in the future, in 2007 the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) developed the first Comprehensive Statewide Freight Plan.
Currently, the Department is updating the Statewide Freight Plan to be in conformance with the guidance under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST) of 2016.
The 2007 Comprehensive Statewide Freight Plan:
- Describes the goods movement
transportation network in New Jersey
from a physical, operational, economic,
and citizen's perspective.
- Produces a synthesis of previous
work and outreach highlighting issues,
trends, challenges and opportunities
in goods movement in New Jersey.
- Identifies, evaluates and recommends
alternative options/policies that
address constraints by mode.
- Increases public understanding
of the goods movement and logistics
- Develops better tools and performance
measures to evaluate freight issues
- Strengthens partnerships and coordination
with sister transportation agencies,
other government organizations, private
industry and the public.
