We were joined by several freight analysis experts for an online event highlighting recent advances in freight systems, research and analysis tools. Becky Knudson, who recently chaired the OMSC's Freight Subcommittee reported on recommendations for interagency collaboration on data, research and tools. Gareth Robins, Director of Analytics at EROAD gave us a glimpse of how truck transponder data might be used to improve freight planning. Professor Eric Jessup from Washington State University and Dr. Sal Hernandez from Oregon State University gave a presentation on a recent study of commodity flows in Idaho using EROAD and other. Dr. Miguel Figliozzi from Portland State University spoke about the fast changing landscape of last-mile delivery innovations, and Kyle Hauger from Metro gave us an update on Metro's freight model.
