Freight Analysis Framework
The Freight Analysis Framework (FAF), produced through a partnership between Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), integrates data from a variety of sources to create a comprehensive picture of freight movement among states and major metropolitan areas by all modes of transportation. Starting with data from the 2012 Commodity Flow Survey (CFS) and international trade data from the Census Bureau, FAF incorporates data from agriculture, extraction, utility, construction, service, and other sectors.
The FAF version 4 (FAF4) baseline edition provides estimates for tonnage and value by regions of origin and destination, commodity type, and mode for 2012, the most recent CFS year. Data are available through the Data Extraction Tool, for download as a complete database, as well as summary files.
The Latest Freight Facts and Figures is now available.
The 2016 Freight Quick Facts Report is now available.
