Goods Movement Planning
SANDAG’s plan to develop multimodal freight connections throughout the San Diego region involves our region’s diverse and expansive system of ports, highways, railways, land ports of entry, airports, and pipelines that reach beyond our borders. While this goods movement system supports a vibrant economy for the region, it is also a major source of pollution and a contributor to roadway congestion. To ensure an economically competitive freight transportation system that also prioritizes California’s climate, air quality, and public health goals, we have concentrated on three freight planning efforts: Freight Gateway Study Update, San Diego and Imperial Counties Sustainable Freight Implementation Strategy, and San Diego – Imperial County Desert Line Feasibility Study. Together, these efforts support an innovative freight transportation system, making San Diego and Imperial Counties more sustainable, resilient, equitable, and economical.
Freight Stakeholders Taskforce
SANDAG works closely with a wide range of experts in the goods movement industry through our Freight Stakeholders Taskforce. This group provides critical input on goods movement planning projects and activities, including the San Diego and Imperial Counties Sustainable Freight Implementation Strategy and the San Diego Regional Medium-Dity and Heavy-Duty Sero Emission Vehicles Blueprint.
Freight Stakeholders Taskforce meetings are open to anyone interested in freight related efforts and are scheduled as needed. For more information or to participate, please contact Tim Garrett, SANDAG Regional Planner, at 619.595.5337 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
