NewIntermodal Freight Report

The Subcommittee’s final report, titled Overview of Intermodal Freight in Wisconsin, was published in March 2019. An Executive Summary is available.

​Intermodal Subcommittee

In late 2017 the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) created the Intermodal Subcommittee under the umbrella of the greater Freight Advisory Committee (FAC), as allowed by the FAC Charter. The Subcommittee consists of public and private sector representatives, and is co-chaired by WisDOT and Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce. WisDOT’s goal is to identify current and future opportunities and challenges to connect Wisconsin industries to world markets through the increased efficiency of containerized shipping.
