45 Appendix B interview Guides Used in This Study Airport Air Cargo Managers/Officials A. What is the importance of air cargo to your airport and community? B. Have you undertaken any studies of air cargo, particularly related to air cargo truck trip planning? C. If answer to (B) is yes, what was the study’s purpose—specific development/facility plan, eco- nomic development, airport master planning? Would you send us any relevant documents associ- ated with the truck trip estimation? D. What types of air cargo and air cargo access to your airport do you plan for? E. When building a new or expanding an existing air cargo facility, do you typically provide estimates of truck trips associated with the new or expanded facility to the airport and/or municipal or regional planning/permitting agency(ies)? F. If answer to (1) is yes, how are these estimates calculated? G. Who are the air cargo partners you work with for these types of studies/planning (e.g., shippers, integrators, non-carrier integrators, forwarders, passenger airlines, cargo airlines)? Air Cargo Experts/Consultants A. What is the range and nature of analyses and tools you employ for airport clients, particularly related to air cargo-related truck trip generation and assignment? B. What are the data sources you use for such analyses and studies? C. What do you see as the key shortcomings and/or complexities in conducting such analyses and studies, including the data required to support them? D. What, if any, do you see as the impact of these shortcomings on the usefulness and/or credibility of such analyses and studies? E. What are the key variables (local, national, global) affecting truck trips associated with air cargo facilities that an airport and its local planning partners should be aware of when estimating future truck trip generation? F. How are changes in the air cargo industry affecting the ability to plan adequately for air cargo facilities? Air Cargo Businesses and Associations A. What are the types of truck trip data requests your company or your membership receive? B. Which organizations typically request information? C. What issues do you have in providing the information? D. What data can you provide and what data is off-limits? E. How is the data you provide typically used? F. Airports typically report that there is little to no data available for them to account for or track air cargo truck-to-truck transfers. Please speak about this issue and the magnitude of the issue at airports where you operate.

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.
