  1. 1. Performance Measures forSustainable Freight Movement Overview of UTCM Project #09-37-15
  2. 2. Sustainability Principles• Combination of progress toward desired outcomes – Economic – Environmental – Social – Considers equity across populations and time
  3. 3. Typical DOT Performance Interests• Mobility and • System congestion preservation• Accessibility • Project delivery• Safety • Traffic• Quality of life operations• Environment • Maintenance• Economic • Human development resources
  4. 4. Freight-Related Decision ConsiderationsPrivate sector Public sector• Market & shipper demand • Investment & financing,• Financial performance taxes, fees metrics • Economic regulation• Efficient management of • Providing & maintaining volumes, schedules, costs infrastructure• Regulatory issues • Land use, facility location, access • Environmental issues • Safety • Operations • Jobs & employment
  5. 5. Freight Sustainability Evaluation Areas• Policy and regulation• Technology• Infrastructure• Operation and maintenance• Non-transportation factors
  6. 6. Performance Measures• Evaluate – Status – Progress – Comparisons• Basis: established goals
  7. 7. Measurement System Components• Framework• Methodology• Goals and objectives• Data requirements• Performance measures• (Aggregate)
  8. 8. Performance Evaluation Framework
  9. 9. Freight Transportation Objectives and Measures• Report contains list of goals, objectives and performance measures• Example format as follows:Sustainability Measure Performance Goal Objectives Dimension No. Measure Improve Reduce freight- Annual fatal accidents safety of related crash rates 1a per truck-mile freight and crash risk Social movement Reduce freight- and of the Annual Hazmat related HazMat 1b general accidents per mile Accidents public
