Mission of the Freight Roundtable
Our mission is to invite and encourage the participation of all freight modes to work across modal lanes in a regional dialogue and to contribute their ideas and opinions on freight needs in order to influence the allocation of funding for freight planning and projects in the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP), Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
In Fall 2021, the RPC released the Freight Profile 2020-2021, which captures existing freight conditions for SE Louisiana. It tells the story of regional freight movements today and it is considered Part I of the first Regional Freight Mobility Plan.

Freight analysis and discussion, in partnership with New Orleans Freight Roundtable participants, culminated in the 2022 New Orleans Regional Freight Mobility Plan. It will be used as a guiding document for the next five years of freight planning to provide a foundation for policy, projects, and studies that benefit freight.

The RPC is soliciting feedback for the draft plan through September 2022. Please send comments to Karen Parsons, Principal Planner, [email protected] and note in the subject line: New Orleans Regional Freight Mobility Plan Feedback with your name and organization.
