Abstract: With support of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) C20 Local Freight Data Improvement program, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) established and advanced a comprehensive freight data improvement program for the DVRPC Region. This project sought to improve access and usability of a variety of data sets for regional freight planning through innovative analysis and visualization. The development of a collection plan, internal databases, and improvements to the PhillyFreightFinder web application were integral components of this comprehensive freight data strategy. A series of internal tools as well as an open-source, replicable template based on PhillyFreightFinder were developed and made available for use by other agencies seeking to create similar products in other regions

Key Words: Freight planning, Freight, Data, PhillyFreightFinder, SHRP2 C20, Performance Measures, County Data
