Freight Advisory Council


Colorado’s multi-state Freight Advisory Committee (FAC) includes representatives from a cross-section of private and public freight industry and transportation planning with expertise and interest in the state’s Freight mobility network. Their role is to provide freight industry insight for future planning purposes, priority setting, and raising issues and concerns to ensure a strong freight network for Colorado. Members use the format to also share relevant information between sectors and stakeholders regarding Freight issues and guide CDOT’s Freight planning and policy activities.


The FAC will serve as a forum for the private sector to advocate for commercial transportation needs, influence transportation policy, and collaborate with partners to develop a transportation system that supports the economic vitality of Colorado by providing for the safe, efficient, coordinated and reliable movement of freight.
