State freight plan

Nebraska’s first State Freight Plan (SFP), published in 2017, laid the groundwork for the development of the State’s continuous, comprehensive statewide freight planning program. The 2023 SFP builds on those efforts by identifying and describing the underlying industry drivers of goods movement in Nebraska and evaluating how supply chains have impacted the condition and performance of the highway system, especially in light of the transformative shocks and changes that have occurred since the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic. The 2023 SFP incorporates the latest data and research on freight and supply chain trends, with insight from a broad set of public and private sector freight transportation stakeholders, including the Plan’s Freight Advisory Committee (FAC).
