intermodal

As many times as intermodal freight transportation is discussed, one knows that the term intermodal is not a household word. What then is an intermodal freight strategies study? For Kansas City, it was multimodal—involving rail, truck, air, and water freight movement. It was multijurisdictional and, consequently, multigeographical—consisting of local cities and the regional Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and both the Missouri and Kansas state transportation departments. The areas studied vary from the regional ten counties to the 37 counties of the Business Economic Area (BEA), from the state level and from the Midwest or Central region level. It was a multiparticipatory process that utilized an outreach program through newsletters, brochures and surveys, and consisted of monthly meetings with an Inland Port/Intermodal Task Force. It was multidisciplinary as our own team consists of engineering, planning, economic, market research, and public relations professionals. The conclusion of this study is not at an end but a beginning. The conclusion recommends a process to continue the work that has been already been started. This study and its previous efforts have been a process. The process has taken time, money, and the efforts of many people—it didn't happen overnight.

In the past five years market trends have had a distinct influence on the trading relationships between countries, specifically with the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Also a resurgence in rail freight transportation has occurred nationwide. At the same time, state, regional, and local transportation agencies were attempting to fully understand the implications of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA). What was meant by intermodal? How did it apply to the respective transportation agency? And what information was available? Many agencies grapple with these questions in preparing an Intermodal Management System (IMS) for their jurisdiction. Another dimension that ISTEA added was the empowerment of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) in preparing an IMS at the regional level and having the intermodal management system built up from the local level. Often the most an MPO knows about freight transportation is the percentage of trucks on major highways. Yet the intermodal or multimodal components of ISTEA require that MPOs deal with divergent issues such as bicycle and pedestrian issues as well as freight mobility.
