  2. 2. AGENDA • Georgia’s Freight Snapshot • Statewide Strategic Transportation Plan • GDOT’s Freight Planning Activities • Statewide Freight & Logistics Plan
  3. 3. GEORGIA FREIGHT FACTS  Georgia’s freight flows are forecast to increase 260% by the year 2035 2.5 Billion Tons  Trucks currently carry 2.5 86% of freight moving 2 through Georgia 1.5 945 Million Billions of Tons Truck traffic is growing 1 Tons twice as fast as car 0.5 traffic 0 2004 2004 2035 2035 Source: GDOT’s Statewide Truck Lane Study
  4. 4. GEORGIA FREIGHT FACTS (CONT’D.) • Freight & transportation-related jobs account for almost 15% of jobs in the state • Georgia is home to six of the top 50 cargo carriers, including the world’s largest -- UPS • Efficient transportation networks are a primary driver of business location decisions • Cargo from Georgia is within two or less days of 80% of the nation’s commercial & industrial markets Georgia is the major hub for freight movement in the Southeast
  5. 5. FREIGHT AND LOGISTICS TASK FORCE VISION
  6. 6. FREIGHT AND LOGISTICS TASK FORCE MISSION
  7. 7. FOCUS ON FREIGHT & LOGISTICS Investing in Commission for a Tomorrow's New Georgia: Statewide Transportation Freight and Freight & Logistics Today (“IT3”): Task Force Logistics Plan Freight Analysis
  8. 8. GEORGIA’S STRATEGIC TRANSPORTATION PLAN: GOALS AND OBJECTIVES :cost of fuel, wasted time, etc.
  9. 9. GEORGIA’S STRATEGIC TRANSPORTATION PLAN •Senate Bill 200 launched Georgia’s first statewide transportation “business case” •Goal: “Inform and guide the overall public dialogue away from input-based methods of spending government funds to a new paradigm of results-based investments in public infrastructure to support economic growth”
  10. 10. GEORGIA’S STRATEGIC TRANSPORTATION PLAN •Plan does not favor “planes, trains or automobiles”; it favors performance per taxpayer dollar invested. – Quantifies employers’ access to ‘talent pools’ – Identifies concept of reliable 30-45 minute commute area workers – Emphasis on efficient and affordable freight movement
  11. 11. GEORGIA’S STRATEGIC TRANSPORTATION PLAN •Allocation of current & new resources – Discusses limitations of current resources &what desired outcomes can be achieved with more revenue – Four investment ‘portfolios’ based on availability & flexibility of resources – Specific recommendation that any new revenues be strategically deployed & effectively governed
  12. 12. AT CURRENT TRANSPORTATION INVESTMENT LEVELS: GEORGIA’S OUTLOOK IS GRIM Year 2030 outlook* ▪ Economic upside (GDP & jobs) from port expansion is at risk--despite investments in ‘last-mile’ connectivity Freight Transport ▪ Other growth opportunities may head to competitors (e.g., Norfolk & NY/NJ) as our priority freight corridors see 60% peak increase without corresponding capacity investments Metro ▪ Per capita congestion costs nearly double today’s levels Atlanta ▪ Employment center talent pools 33% smaller than today people ▪ Core transit system operating at 70% of current levels mobility ▪ Xpress bus service & other transit systems cut or eliminated ▪ Medium-sized cities--at best--experience “Atlanta-like” or Medium-sized “Charlotte-like” levels of congestion…at worst, population city and rural & job growth choked off before that occurs area people ▪ Safety improves, but rural job center accessibility remains mobility unchanged (e.g., minimal investment in Governor’s Road Improvement Program ”GRIP”) *Assumes current resources allocated primarily towards people mobility in metro Atlanta and rest of state, as reflected in Funding Level 1 SOURCE: GRTA/ARC Travel Demand Model; Kimley-Horn; team analysis

DEMAND: • Identify major freight origin & destination hubs (including warehouse/distribution) • Identify major freight corridors for each mode, including significant freight bottlenecks for all modes • Last-mile connectivity issues around Port of Savannah & other key locations
  20. 20. STATEWIDE FREIGHT & LOGISTICS PLAN (CONT’D.) • Develop a range of economic forecasts • Forecast future freight flow volumes and trends • Determine benefit-to-cost ratios for identified needs & projects • Identify performance metrics for matching supply & demand to evaluate projects that improve freight movement & logistics operations
