Balancing freight mobility and urban livability - share your experiences in our survey.

State Smart Transportation Initiative, University of Wisconsin-Madison

How does your community mitigate the negative impacts of urban freight transportation without stifling economic development?

The State Smart Transportation Initiative (SSTI) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is currently working on a project to understand how state, local, and regional governments use freight transportation demand management (TDM) strategies to reduce the negative impacts of freight transportation in their communities.

Freight TDM includes the use of incentives/disincentives, regulations, pricing/tolling, and investments in supportive infrastructure to increase freight mobility and reduce the negative impacts of freight transportation in urban areas by changing freight routes, modes, pickup/delivery times, or operational characteristics. 

If you work for a state, regional, or local government and have pursued or considered efforts to reduce the impacts of urban freight movement, please take a few minutes share your experiences with us by taking our short survey (5-10 minutes). Click here to begin. 

The project will be completed in September and the final report will be available at
