... 3 NCFRP Project 26, "Freight Data Cost Elements," had the following objectives: • Identify the specific types of direct freight transportation cost data elements required for public investment, policy, and regulatory decisionmaking; and • Describe and assess different strategies for identifying and obtaining these cost data elements. Although these objectives could include such aspects as logistics costs, cost of externalities produced by freight activity, and the like, the project panel -- considering the state of the practice and knowledge, as well as the project resources available -- decided to focus on direct operational costs and the data cost items needed for their estimation.
