The Regional Core Freight Network is an integrated, managed, region-wide system of major gateways and corridors that supports supply chain operational requirements for the staging and intermodal transfer of goods, their connection and placement at production and consumption points, and their shipment within and outside the region.
The network identifies a targeted system of highway, rail, air and maritime links and nodes that provide service to regional goods movement and support the regional economy. The network highlights the key ports, terminals, origins, and destinations of major freight movements and their connections to inland and global markets.
The G-MAP partners developed the Core Freight Network Map below from readily available data sources and an understanding of supply chain patterns. The Map is a working draft and is intended to be revised as G-MAP implementation progresses.
