CMAP has been trying to address the inadequacies of the current models (that were developed for personal passenger travel) in freight demand forecasting. A new tour-based and logistics supply chain model for the Chicago metropolitan area has recently been developed and tested. This presentation will cover these new model initiatives, motivations and policy considerations. The presentation will also include a software demo by CMAP.
