Goods Movement Study
The Goods Movement Study report summarizes an initial attempt to examine Nevada’s freight transportation system, with an eye on how to best utilize Nevada’s freight strengths in the economic development and economic diversification process.

While the tourism and services industries need certain types of infrastructure and services (passenger highways and passenger airports, restaurants and hotels), the other types of non-services businesses often need other types of transportation (freight transportation), other types of infrastructure (utilities), and other types of labor and markets.
