Freight Committee

Florida MPO Advisory Council Freight Committee

The Florida Metropolitan Planning Organization Advisory Council (MPOAC) created the Freight Advisory Committee in April 2013 to serve as a clearinghouse of actionable ideas that allow Florida’s Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) to foster and support sound freight planning and freight initiatives. The members of the Freight Advisory Committee seek to understand the economic effects of proposed freight-supportive projects; foster relationships between public agencies with responsibilities for freight movement and private freight interests; and reduce policy barriers to goods movement to, from, and within Florida.

The Chair of the MPOAC Freight Committee is Gregory Stuart (Executive Director of the Broward MPO) and the Vice-Chair is Gary Huttman (Deputy Executive Director of MetroPlan Orlando). The Freight Committee will meet as necessary throughout the year in concert with the statewide meetings of the MPOAC.
