Florida Freight Advisory Committee in the FDOT Context

In recognition of the significant role that freight mobility plays as an economic driver for the state, the Office of Modal Development works collaboratively on multimodal initiatives. The office includes the Aviation Office, the Freight & Rail Office, the Seaport Office, the Spaceport Office, and the Transit Office.

These offices continue to work with federal and local government partners in planning, coordination, financing, grant management, ridership, and regional analysis. These offices also serve as a tool to better connect, develop, and implement a planning process in order to maximize the use of the existing facilities and to integrate and coordinate the various modes of transportation, including the combined utilization of both government-owned and privately-owned resources.

The office works in conjunction with the other offices and organizations in the areas of operations, corridor planning, statistics, and further development of the Strategic Intermodal System (SIS) and other planning efforts.
