2 Figure 7 Lehigh Valley Percent Freight Tonnage and Value by Direction, and This section details the tonnage and value of freight moved by mode and direction in and the projected tonnage and value in. 5.1 TONNAGE In order to gain a better understanding of how freight moves within the Lehigh Valley, tonnage movement by mode and direction was analyzed for and. Inbound freight is freight that originates outside the Valley but has a destination within the Valley. Internal Freight is freight that both originates and has a destination within the Lehigh Valley. Outbound freight originates within the Valley and has a destination outside the Valley. Although through freight (freight moving across the region without an origin or destination in the region) plays an important role in the region, through freight is not included in this analysis due to data limitations. As shown in Figure 7, the majority of freight in the Lehigh Valley is inbound freight and is projected to remain that way in, despite a small decrease in percentage terms. Outbound freight comprises the next highest percentage of freight, and this share is projected to increase by 8% to 4 in. Internal freight accounts for a small percentage of freight movement in the Lehigh Valley, comprising only 2% in and in. Table 3 and Table 4 break down the freight movement by mode for both and, respectively. Trucks account for the largest share of freight movement regardless of direction in both and, followed by rail, air and other modes VALUE In addition to tonnage, the value of freight movement was also analyzed by direction and mode for and. Figure 7 shows that, similar to tonnage, inbound freight movement accounted for the most value in, then outbound, followed by internal. In, the outbound value of freight is expected to increase in percentage terms, while the inbound percentage of value is expected to decrease and the internal value remains relatively stable. Table 5 shows that the trucks moved the largest value of freight regardless of direction, followed by rail, air and other. This ranking is projected to remain the same in, with values increasing across all modes as tonnages are projected to increase (Table 6)

4 Figure 8 Lehigh Valley Top Commodities, and 5.3 COMMODITIES This section analyzes the top five commodities moved by mode and direction for and the projected commodities in. This provides an overview of the types of goods moving, and projected to move, in the Lehigh Valley Highway Commodity Movement As previously discussed, truck was the predominant mode for moving freight, both in terms of tonnage and value, and is projected to remain so. The top five inbound truck commodities by tonnage and by value are illustrated in Figure 9 and Figure 10 for and, respectively. Chapter 12 provides the Transearch Analysis for the region, providing more detail regarding the data and analysis methodology. The top five inbound commodities by truck account for 5 of the total commodities by tonnage in and 58% in. The top five commodities remain relatively the same from to with the exception of rail intermodal drayage from ramp, replacing gravel or sand. The top five commodities by value are similar to the top five by tonnage. Figure 11 and Figure 12 illustrate the top five outbound truck commodities by tonnage and value for and, respectively. The top five commodities leaving the Lehigh Valley via truck account for 58% by tonnage and 62% by value in. Warehousing and rail intermodal drayage represent a large percentage, both by tonnage and value, of the commodities moving out of the region. This reflects the significant presence of warehousing industries in the region as well as the importance of intermodal movements Rail Commodity Movement In, rail contributed of the total tons of freight movement into, out of and within the Lehigh Valley. This is expected to decrease to 8% by. The top five inbound rail commodities by tonnage and by value are illustrated in Figure 13 and Figure 14 for and, respectively. Figure 15 and Figure 16 illustrate the top five outbound rail commodities by tonnage and value for and, respectively. In, the top five commodities account for more than 5 by tonnage and 68% by value
