Freight is defined as any good, product, or raw material carried by a commercial means of transportation – including air, highway, rail, water, and pipeline. The activities involved in the management of how and where freight moves are defined as logistics.
MDOT is responsible for addressing the movement of cargo by air, highway, marine, pipeline, and rail modes of transportation, including the interconnection of such modes. The functions needed to support this directive are maintained throughout department's bureaus and regions.
An efficient and dependable transportation system can lower costs, enhance competitiveness, and support just-in-time inventory systems for business.
