The Metro Freight research series assesses goods trade at the
metropolitan scale. It uses a unique and comprehensive database to
capture all the goods moving in and out of U.S. metropolitan areas, both
domestically and beyond. The reports in the series will describe which
goods move between metropolitan areas, how they move via different modes
of transportation, and uncover the specific trading relationships
between U.S. metropolitan areas as well as their global counterparts.
