Below is the uncorrected machine-read text of this chapter, intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text of each book. Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

148 These abbreviations supplement the list of abbreviations and acronyms used without defini- tions in TRB publications and are used through most of NCFRP Report 35. Text in Chapters 6 and 7 limits abbreviations, however, because that text corresponds directly to the text that will appear on the Freight Data Dictionary website (http://freightdatadictionary.com). To make the Freight Data Dictionary environment as user friendly as possible, the full names of organizations and key terms are spelled out in each instance.

TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCFRP) Report 35: Implementing the Freight Transportation Data Architecture: Data Element Dictionary provides the findings of the research effort to develop a freight data dictionary for organizing the myriad freight data elements currently in use.

A product of this research effort is a web-based freight data element dictionary hosted by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS).

The project web page includes a link to supporting appendices not printed with the report.
