Metro Halifax Truck Mapping and Analysis

Transport Canada

CPCS used Shaw Trucking GPS data to conduct a freight analysis and map truck movements in the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM). CPCS assessed speeds on the road network; evaluated turn-around time at Halterm container terminal at the Port of Halifax; consulted policymakers and trucking companies in the region to complement the GIS mapping findings; and analyzed freight-flow data using the Trucking Commodity Origin and Destination (TCOD) Survey and trucking-count data from HRM.
