Publication of FAF5 Truck Flows -- Estimates and Maps NOW AVAILABLE

The Federal Highway Administration has published FAF5 estimates of truck flows on the National Highway System (NHS). This release of FAF5 data includes estimates of truck flows on the NHS network by twelve different commodity groups and is available for download from https://ops.fhwa.dot.gov/freight/freight_analysis/faf/index.htm. The FAF5 network flow data package includes modeled results from FAF5 2017, 2022, and 2050 baseline scenarios representing U.S. freight flows by truck types for domestic, imported, and exported commodities. National-level maps representing highway commodity corridors are available for download from https://ops.fhwa.dot.gov/freight/freight_analysis/nat_freight_stats/index.htm. Similar national-level maps representing future flows and State level maps to delineate flows for each State are under development.

FAF5 is based on the recent 2017 commodity flow survey of shippers in the U.S. and provides information about the amount and types of goods that moved by land, water, and air between large metropolitan areas, states, and regions.  FAF data is used in many State freight plans for considering national freight system trends to support the analysis.  As States work to update their existing freight plans, this new information from FAF5 will be a valuable resource for identifying needs and key issues confronting the freight system.
