The Fargo/Moorhead Council of Governments, Fargo Cass County Economic Development Corporation, City of Moorhead, Minnesota Department of Transportation, North Dakota Department of Transportation, and a committee made up of interested parties from western Minnesota and eastern North Dakota initiated a feasibility study to evaluate enhancing intermodal transportation options. The committee determined that the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute should conduct a survey to determine the current and potential future volume of intermodal freight trailers and containers in the area. This study provides the groundwork for decisions to be made by shippers, government officials and others regarding the next steps in pursuing enhanced transportation services for businesses in the study region.
