Multimodal Freight Network

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation's Multimodal Freight Network is composed of highways, local roads, rail lines, ports and airports. The network identifies the role of the different transportation facilities in shipping freight to and from Wisconsin. The network will help prioritize Wisconsin's freight transportation improvement activities in the future. 

The Multimodal Freight Network builds upon the department's previously-established priorities for highways, railroads, airports and water ports - as articulated in Connections 2030 - the state's long-range multimodal transportation plan.




Commodity profiles and industry maps

Commodity profiles were created utilizing WisDOT's 2007 commodity flow database (TRANSEARCH). These profiles analyze many of the state's important commodities and indicate their origins and destinations.

WisDOT also created industry maps showing the location of the state's largest shippers and receivers, along with the major highways used for the shipment of the commodities. The sources of data for the maps are WisDOT's commodity flow database and the IHS Freight Finder database.
