As part of this study, a team of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the Universidad Nacional de Colombia at Medellin designed and executed a novel multi-layer freight data collection exercise in Medellin, Colombia. Currently, researchers from both the CoE and the Universidad Nacional de Colombia at Medellin are analyzing the data to characterize the freight activity of the city, compare freight generation and freight trip generation patterns, and analyze the relationship between freight trip attraction and production.
