Freight Analysis Framework Modernization: Overview & Feedback*

Monday, June 3, 2024

June 25, 2024 at 3:00 PM Eastern

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) is developing two new products as part of the Freight Analysis Framework (FAF) commodity flow data program: a multimodal assignment and flow visualization tool and a county-level origin-destination flow database.

BTS will share updates on these products and on its plans to modernize the FAF forecasting process. Presenters will seek input from attendees to shape future product features for the benefit of freight data users across the United States. 

*The webinar will cover similar concepts as what BTS presented at Transportation Review Board in January 2024.

This presentation will be moderated by Stephanie Lawrence, Director of the Office of Statistical and Economic Analysis.
