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.
The Role of Freight Transportation
The needs of the non-tourism, non-gaming industries are in some ways very different from those of the services industries traditional to Nevada. 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.
Of further note, the appendix data in this report supports the findings of the Nevada Goods Movement Study.
