Freight Facts and Figures 2006 Chapter V Safety, Energy, and Environmental Consequences of Freight Transportation   [open pdf - 1MB]

"Freight Facts and Figures 2006 is a snapshot of the volume and value of freight flows in the United States, the physical network over which freight moves, the economic conditions that generate freight movements, the industry that carries freight, and the safety, energy, and environmental consequences of freight transportation. This snapshot helps planners, decision-makers, and the public understand the magnitude and importance of freight transportation in the global economy...Growing demand for freight transportation heightens concerns about its safety, energy consumption, and environmental consequences. Most of our current knowledge is in safety, with some in energy consumption. More information is needed to understand and fix freight-related environmental issues."
