  • Abstract:
    This report presents material developed by the LSU National Ports and Waterways Institute

    within the framework of the study and report for the Louisiana Statewide Model Intermodal Plan.

    The Institute’s participation has concentrated on the freight component of the study with emphasis

    on rail, ports, waterways, and intermodal connections between these modes of transportation.

    The Institute also has taken a leading role in public outreach efforts for the entire study

    encompassing all modes of transportation.

    The results of the Institute’s analyses are reflected in the overall findings and reported in the

    Statewide Intermodal Plan. However, the material included in this document also presents

    information which, for a variety of reasons, is not included in the overall report. It is intended

    that presentation of this more detailed itiormation and analyses will be helpfi.dto the State and its

    constituencies involved in the marine and rail freight transportation sectors.

    The objective of the work performed by the Institute was to determine how to enhance the

    competitive position of Louisiana freight transportation by taking better advantage of available

    capacity and improving intermodal efficiency provided by State facilities. The material presented

    in this report proceeds from forecasting fiture demand; to the adequacy of existing facilities and

    capacity needs for the fiture; to organizational, marketing and investment requirements; to

    comparative analysis of the Louisiana freight terminal productivity and costs; and culminates in a

    strategic assessment of fhture threats and opportunities in sustaining and expanding the Louisiana

    transportation market share.
