Date published: Resource type: Audio/Video, Infographic, Website/ ToolExternal link: www.freightworks.orgSummary: This project was a 2014 John and Jane Public Competition winner. From TRB Committee ADA 60: The six-county region represented by the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) includes the nation’s largest container port complex; the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach; key land ports-of-entry between California and Baja California, Mexico; and over 830 million square feet of warehousing space served by an extensive network of highways and rail mainlines. To highlight the importance of investing in the transportation system to transport goods, SCAG developed the following communication materials: Video: “Southern California Delivers the Goods” that highlights how imported goods are transported from one mode to the other through an extensive transportation network, while undergoing multiple handling processes before arriving at a store shelf. Infographic: “BY THE NUMBERS: Goods Movement in Southern California” that provides interesting facts about goods movement activities in Southern California.
