Topic: Freight Analysis Framework 3

Description: The Freight Analysis Framework (FAF) provides a comprehensive picture of freight flows to, from, and within the United States. Hear about the improvements and updates included in FAF version 3, released in July 2010, which integrates data from the 2007 Commodity Flow Survey and other sources. New estimates include tonnage and value by commodity type, mode, origin, and destination for 2007. Also due for release in October 2010 are forecasts through the year 2040 and an assignment of truck flows to the highway network.
