Abstract The relational Multimodal Freight Database (MFD) was developed as part of Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Research Project 0-6297 entitled Freight Planning Factors Impacting Texas Commodity Flows, conducted by the Center for Transportation Research (CTR). The objective was to capture relevant publicly available freight data required for updating TxDOT freight models and studies. Implementation Project 5-6297-01, entitled Multimodal Freight Database, extends the work conducted as part of TxDOT Research Project 0-6297. Specifically, the objectives of Implementation Project 5-6297-01 are to disseminate information about the MFD by hosting six workshops (Task 1), host a webinar to demonstrate the MFD to selected FHWA freight leaders (Task 2), and update the MFD given the feedback received during Tasks 1 and 2. This document summarizes the outcome of Task 1: Conduct Multimodal Freight Database Workshops. The objective of Task 1 was to demonstrate the MFD to key potential users for review and comment.
