Freight moves by multiple transportation modes: truck, rail, air, water, and pipeline. These modes work in concert to move freight from its origin (national, international, regional, or local) to the shops and stores consumers frequent, or directly to our homes. Each mode involves unique systems and infrastructure; various factors related to that infrastructure affect how efficiently freight is moved and delivered.
Freight movement is a function of the private sector but is dependent on governments and public agencies to facilitate that movement. In addition to our
Freight Plan, WAMPO provides a regional forum for transportation planning and a member of our staff serves on the
Kansas Freight Advisory Committee.
