Multiple Modes Profile

Multiple Modes Profile


The Memphis Urban Area Freight Profile inventories the cargo of goods moving to and from our region using Freight Analysis Framework data available from the Federal Highway Administration. The information details the major commodities being moved by each mode of transport as well as the top destinations for each mode. Freight Analysis Framework data can be interpreted with this Department of Transportation guide.

The Freight Profile categorizes destinations by Megaregions, which are large networks of metropolitan regions that share culture and history, economic linkages, and infrastructure systems, as well as Gateway Cities. Megaregions are defined by the America 2050 project. Gateway Cities are metropolitan areas outside of the eleven American Megaregions.
