Georgia Freight

The goal of the Department is to use a strategic approach to provide well-planned transportation investments to accommodate freight growth and logistics needs statewide.  Freight and logistics demand is a critical component in Georgia’s economy. As described in the Governor’s Task Force on Freight & Logistics Final Report, the logistics industry in Georgia makes up 18 percent of the State’s gross state product (GSP). There are 5,000 companies providing logistics services. These companies employ 110,000 Georgians and generate over $50 billion in sales annually. Additionally, there are over 30,000 companies in Georgia that rely on the logistics industry to move goods through supply chains. These companies employ over 700,000 people and generate over a half trillion dollars of annual revenue.


State Freight and Logistics Plan Update

The updated, US DOT-compliant State Freight & Logistics Plan will be a comprehensive, strategic assessment of various demand scenarios on the state’s freight and logistics-related infrastructure assets and options for investments and operational and policy considerations that support Georgia shippers and logistics-enabled businesses, enable positive economic benefits statewide, and enhance the safe, efficient, and reliable movement of goods throughout Georgia. Further details, including details on public involvement and outreach, will be posted on this webpage as the work on the update commences in late summer 2021.
