Freight Mobility and Trade Plan


Overview

The Freight Mobility & Trade Plan (FMTP) is a comprehensive plan that identifies freight transportation facilities critical to the state’s economic growth and guides multimodal freight investments in the state. 

To receive funding under the National Highway Freight Program (23 U.S.C. 167), the FAST Act requires the development of a state freight plan which must comprehensively address the state’s freight planning activities and investments both immediate and long-range.  The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) included several new required elements for State Freight Plans, establishes new priorities States are required to consider in carrying out activities under the State Freight Plan, clarifies the State Freight Plan approval process, and modifies the length of the update cycle. 

Bringing together the perspectives and knowledge of public and private partners, including  shippers, carriers, and infrastructure owners and operators, is necessary for developing a  comprehensive and relevant State Freight Plan. Our Florida Freight Advisory Committee and regional outreach events play a critical role in achieving this aim.
