• Stakeholder Outreach

    Coordination with various stakeholders is required throughout the development of the state freight plan.

    Stakeholders include the Freight Advisory Committee and Metropolitan and Rural Planning Organizations:

    • Freight Advisory Committee: Established by the N.C. Department of Transportation, the Freight Advisory Committee consists of public- and private-sector freight stakeholders to engage in NCDOT activities.  The committee serves as a steering committee for the Statewide Freight Plan.

    • MPOs and RPOs: NCDOT is developing the Statewide Freight Plan in coordination with its urban and rural planning partners.  NCDOT will conduct two rounds of coordination meetings with the MPOs and RPOs – one during the development of the freight network assessment and a second to screen strategies and recommendations. 

    NCDOT will conduct a series of interviews and surveys with the state's private sector freight stakeholders.  This includes freight carriers, shippers, logistics service providers, facility operators, industry groups, economic development agencies and other stakeholders.
