46 Appendix C potential Freight Movements data Sources RSG also reviewed available national data sets that could potentially be useful in getting/estimating air- port truck trips data. Some of the potential data sets reviewed are summarized in Table C1. Source Data Relevance Pros/Cons Use FHWA FAF/CFS Weight and value of air cargo movements and shipment sizes by O-D pairs (FAF zones) Includes highway truck traffic and truck tons on the network Free to public Excludes letter-type of package shipped by air Uses T-100 data Detail network tons could be analyzed for highway links by the airports for truck trips to/from airports IHS/Global Insight Transearch Weight and value of air cargo movements and shipment sizes by O-D pairs (counties) Includes number of trucks for O-D movements (county to county). Calculated from tons based on truck payloads assumptions Costly (however, states might have purchased the data for other uses) To obtain number of trucks to/from counties and airports To obtain tons of cargo to/from airport FAA T100 Weight of freight and mail air cargo transported (domestic and international) Includes airport-to- airport segment or market weight of cargo moved Free to public Limited coverage of carriers’ filings (particularly for all- cargo service) To obtain tons of cargo to/from airport Airport FAF = freight analysis framework CFS = commodity flow survey Traffic Reports Departure and arrival tonnage of “mail” and “freight” in both “international” and “domestic” markets Air cargo activity information including the weight of loaded and unloaded cargo at the airport Not all airports publish such reports or have those available to public To obtain tons of cargo to/from airport Table C1 PoTenTial DaTa SouRCeS foR aiRPoRT TRuCk TRiP MoveMenTS

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.
