Published Date



Center for Transportation Studies, University of Minnesota




This annual report features several examples of MFAC's ability to address key aspects of Minnesota's freight system by tapping its members and collaborating with others. MFAC published a white paper on the state’s intermodal service that details its importance to the Minnesota economy, its current state, and its challenges and potential. A panel of MFAC members took a closer look at the possible impact of recent trade policy shifts on the freight industry. MFAC engaged key air and railroad freight providers on their plans and investments. MFAC explored connected and automated vehicles (CAVs), delving into potential implications for freight, particularly the trucking industry.
