Goods movement is a cornerstone of the Southern California economy and supports the quality of life of residents in the SCAG region. In recognition of the benefits and challenges of regional freight movement, SCAG recently completed the Comprehensive Regional Goods Movement Plan and Implementation Strategy, the long-range plan for goods movement in the region.
In Southern California, the movement of freight provides the goods and services needed to sustain regional and national industries and consumers on a daily basis. As part of the 2016-2040 RTP/SCS, SCAG identified over $70 billion of needed investment in its regional goods movement system. Read more about the challenges and proposed strategies here.
The Goods Movement Border Crossing Study – Phase II assessed goods movement border crossings in San Diego and Imperial Counties to identify emerging trends expected to affect future freight movement, provide forecasts of cross-border freight volumes under alternative scenarios, and develop recommendations to enhance future goods movement.
