To provide insights into the US locations with the largest number of freight hubs and the highest routes being driven by freight truckers throughout the country. Specifically, we will provide:
- The location of freight hubs: Where the hubs are based (e.g., Orlando, Los Angeles)
- The size of the freight hubs in those locations. This will be based on the number of trucks or containers.
- The freight routes with the highest demand of trucks traveling (e.g., highway I-70 between Kansas City and Denver has X number of trucks traveling each day, accounting for X percentage of all freight traffic).
We will focus on freight traveling by truck and use industry-level data such as Federal and state Department of Transportation data sources.
