The Oregon Transportation Commission adopted the Oregon Freight Plan on June 15, 2011 as an element of the Oregon Transportation Plan. The purpose of the Oregon Freight Plan is to improve freight connections to local, state, tribal, regional, national and international markets with the goal of increasing trade-related jobs and income for Oregon workers and businesses. The Oregon Freight Plan is a resource designed to guide freight-related operation, maintenance and investment decisions.
The plan documents the economic importance of freight movement in Oregon, identifies transportation networks important to freight-dependent industries and recommends multimodal strategies to increase strategic freight system efficiency. Oregon is the ninth most trade-dependent state in the nation demonstrating the importance to the state’s economy of efficiently transporting Oregon products to world markets.
