This project researches freight modeling, competition, price, policy, flow capacity, etc. for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation. It focuses on the development of a scalable global freight flow model.
This research focuses on the development of a scalable global freight flow model that predicts volume and mix of inter-modal freight in the next decade and beyond, and distributes it over a secure multi-modal transportation network while considering operational metrics and efficiencies at inter-modal facilities.
The objectives of the project are:
* To understand containerized freight flows between US ports and International ports, and between US ports in USA
* Plan procedures that provide forward visibility of overloaded security resources
* To understand how security inspection affects daily terminal operations
