Freight By Mode
We take it for granted but our lives are dependent on freight. The items we consume daily come to us by air, sea, truck and rail. The Broward MPO is working with our partners in the region to improve the movement of freight and goods in Southeast Florida.
Today’s lifestyles depend on speed and our skyways are the quickest means to deliver goods from any place you can imagine.
Did you know railroads help reduce energy consumption and pollution, lower greenhouse gas emissions and cut highway gridlock?
Did you know over 90% of the world's trade is carried by sea? It would require hundreds of freight aircraft, miles of rail cars and fleets of trucks to carry the goods that can fit on one larger liner ship.
The trucking industry moves close to 11.5 billion tons of freight a year. The impact of trucking is immeasurable on our economy.
