A Set of Strategic Freight Performance Measures for Ontario
Results from this research indicate that development of a multi-modal freight performance system would be a useful outcome for Ontario. The system could be operationalized through a dashboard which ultimately could be shared on-line with all participants in the freight system and could potentially help raise awareness among the general public on the importance of goods movement. The results of this research derive from two primary streams of inquiry. There has been an extensive review of the available literature (peer-reviewed and otherwise) and secondly, in-person consultations have been undertaken with a varied range of Ontario stakeholders from the public and private sectors. Insights from both processes have been used to derive a list of relevant measures for the province.
