Travel Time in Freight Significant Corridors

FHWA studies truck travel times in freight-significant corridors to measure the performance of the freight transportation system. Truck travel times indicate how well the intercity highway network is being used to calibrate network assignment models and to understand activity by time of day.

Freight Performance Measures Web Based (FPMweb) Tool

The Federal Highway Administration's Office of Freight Management and Operations, through a research partnership with the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI), has developed numerous performance measures for the nation's highway system through the Freight Performance Measures (FPM) initiative.

FPMweb, measures operating speeds for trucks at any given place and point in time along 25 interstate highways (I-5, I-10, I-15, I-20, I-24, I-25, I-26, I-35, I-40, I-45, I-55, I-65, I-70, I-75, I-76, I-77, I-80, I-81, I-84, I-85, I-87, I-90, I-91, I-94, and I-95) that are considered significant freight routes. By accessing this system, transportation data analysts, researchers and other practitioners can determine where, when and how efficiently trucks are moving on selected interstate highways.
