The ability to forecast freight to support transportation infrastructure decisions is limited by data availability at a level of detail meaningful to the transportation planner. The Freight Analysis Framework Version 2 is a national, comprehensive public freight database. The difficulty that transportation planners encounter when using this data is due to extensive aggregation. In this paper, the authors develop a methodology for creating freight analysis zones (FAZs) at a sub-state level by partitioning a state into meaningful zones that support freight transportation planning and analysis. The authors conclude that FAZs can be used effectively without degrading the quality of the forecasts.
