WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will be conducting tests to facilitate freight transportation and information processing.
One of the tests will focus on the transmission of information and the movement of container chassis in and out of a port terminal.
The FWHA says the test will demonstrate the "freight information highway" by providing freight and cargo information in a standard format and linking to a backbone information system for monitoring chassis movements and facilitating their pick-up and drop-offs.
Another test to be conducted is a terminal dray operations test, which the FHWA is hoping will improve cross-town movement of freight in Chicago.
