Abstract: This brochure has been developed by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) as part of a series of commodity profiles that seek to illustrate the supply chain of select commodities. This series is meant to help municipalities and the general public better understand a specific commodity’s: history in the region; impact on economic development and employment; key facilities and modal distribution; and trends and transportation planning implications. The first part in this series explores crude oil, historically one of the highest-volume commodities to be imported into the region. Crude oil was identified by regional private-sector partners participating in the Delaware Valley Goods Movement Task Force, DVRPC’s freight advisory committee, as a key commodity to consider in planning due to recent changes in the regional supply chain.

Key Words: Freight, Goods Movement, Supply Chain, Ports, Freight Rail, Refineries, Commodity Profile, Crude Oil, Manufacturing, Petroleum Refining, Crude-by-rail, Domestic Crude Oil, Bakken Crude, Economic Development, Delaware Valley Economy, Employment
