Title

A Strategic Decision Model for Evaluating Inland Freight Hub Locations

Abstract

This research identifies criteria that can be used to evaluate existing or potential inland multimodal freight hubs. Inland hubs are essential for a more efficient freight distribution system and can play an important role in improving the livability and economic vitality of a region. The research uses data gathered from subject-matter experts to determine the relevant criteria needed to evaluate the location of inland freight hubs. Findings are then categorized in a multi-criteria decision framework. Decision makers can use the findings to identify factors that will provide strategic inputs that are vital to the location decision process.
