2007 Statewide Freight Plan

To increase understanding of the goods movement issues, constraints, and opportunities facing the state now and in the future, in 2007 the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) developed the first Comprehensive Statewide Freight Plan.

Currently, the Department is updating the Statewide Freight Plan to be in conformance with the guidance under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST) of 2016.

The 2007 Comprehensive Statewide Freight Plan:

  • Describes the goods movement transportation network in New Jersey from a physical, operational, economic, and citizen's perspective.
  • Produces a synthesis of previous work and outreach highlighting issues, trends, challenges and opportunities in goods movement in New Jersey.
  • Identifies, evaluates and recommends alternative options/policies that address constraints by mode.
  • Increases public understanding of the goods movement and logistics issues.
  • Develops better tools and performance measures to evaluate freight issues and options.
  • Strengthens partnerships and coordination with sister transportation agencies, other government organizations, private industry and the public.
