The Supply Chain Transportation and Logistics (SCTL) Center and the Texas Transportation Institute are supporting development of the dynamic 5-to-10-year Multimodal Freight Transportation Research Roadmap, under the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) 20-114 project. The National Freight Research Roadmap recommends a prioritized portfolio of initiatives to advance the knowledge and capabilities of transportation decisionmakers. This roadmap outlines the research themes and research projects that comprise a 5–10-year strategic research agenda.
