As the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura Counties, SCAG performs ongoing research and analyses of the regional transportation system. Goods movement, in particular, receives a significant amount of attention as it serves as one the most critical economic generators in Southern California.
About The Program
Last mile freight activity is a critical component of supply chains for both consumers and intermediary businesses dealing with physical goods. E-commerce has had a profound impact on last mile delivery growth, and in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated the frequency of deliveries adding further stress to global supply chains. At the same time, air quality challenges continue to impact the public health of the region.
The SCAG Goods Movement Program strives to create, maintain, and provide information and tools that advance planning for freight in Southern California. Please use the resources below to access past regional freight studies, videos on goods movement in Southern California, an interactive map of the FreightWorks system, quarterly trade reports, and fact sheets.
