Develop a comprehensive five-borough freight strategy

DOT will develop truck route profiles for each borough to better understand truck route use and compliance. This analysis will enable the agency to better understand the movement of goods, the needs of shippers and receivers, and community concerns. The agency will then recommend a series of actions to reduce the environmental and social impacts of trucking, while enabling our economy to grow.
