44 Appendix A Checklist of Considerations Associated with Air Cargo-Related Truck Trip data The following provides a general “checklist” of considerations that planners can use to identify possible information and data sources and options when conducting research into truck trip generation asso- ciated with air cargo facilities. This list is not exhaustive nor will it be appropriate for every situation. However, it provides transportation planners and analysts with a starting point for better understanding the dynamics of air cargo movements and associated truck activities. A. What are the air cargo tonnages handled by the airport? • All-cargo carriers • Belly cargo • Integrated express carriers (Note: Airport-published/maintained air cargo tonnage reports may be used along with truck count data to calculate truck trip generation rates of air cargo facilities.) B. What are the air cargo flows at the airport? Where is cargo coming from and going to? C. What entities (agencies, offices, firms) hold/maintain the data? D. What are the truck trip counts and classifications (truck types) associated with the air cargo facility? E. What are the different types of air cargo handled at air cargo facilities? F. What percentage of truck movements are truck-truck transfers and what percentage are to/from airport and to/from locations outside the airport? G. How will the region’s economic status/growth affect air cargo demand at the airport?

TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 80: Estimating Truck Trip Generation for Airport Air Cargo Activity compiles existing information about air cargo truck trip generation studies. The existing literature and research regarding air cargo facility-related truck trip generation rates is limited in its scope and detail. In addition, the complexity of the modern air cargo industry makes it difficult to obtain the data necessary to develop truck trip generation rates. Access to such information could conceivably help a community plan and invest appropriately by accounting for air cargo’s impacts. Similarly, air cargo operators and airport officials could employ such data to help ensure cargo facility truck access and egress remains reliable and safe.
