Overview.The Freight Transportation Advisory Committee, or FTAC, is the industry’s advisory panel to the MPO that advises the MPO Board on freight movement and truck traffic needs.
Until recently, freight transportation issues had not been formally and systematically addressed by most MPOs to consider roadway improvements that must be made for safety and freight efficiency.
The role of freight, especially trucks, still remains absolutely essential for getting the goods from the producer to the distributor and finally to retail centers and consumers.
The FTAC is actively pursuing candidates from the industry in freight, logistics, shipping, trucking, warehousing, and intermodal areas for membership appointments by MPO Governing Board members.
Become a volunteer member of the Freight Transportation Advisory Committee by e-mailing Elizabeth Rockwell, FTAC Coordinator and Public Involvement Manager, or by calling her at 305-375-1881.
If you are a member of the freight industry, or are interested in improving freight movement, we welcome you to submit your name for nomination to our committee.
