Goods Movement & International Trade

The "Goods Movement and International Trade" thematic area is concerned with how crowded and congested cities can efficiently move goods and provide transportation infrastructure to support economic growth. Productivity issues associated with international goods movement are of particular interest. This includes intermodal facilities, port operations and ground transportation within metropolitan regions. Productivity can be studied in a variety of ways, such as new technologies that improve cargo handling, information technology to optimize the allocation of resources, and policies that will promote efficient goods movements. Another priority topic is research on policies and programs for the State of California in the area of goods movement, along with the safety of goods movements.
