Multi-State Freight Working Group

About

The Multi-State Freight Working Group is the first working group to be formed under the MAP Forum.  The Multi-State Freight Working Group meets once a year.  

Truck Parking and COVID-19 Announcement

Trucks are essential in maintaining our critical supply chains.  Their activities need to be supported, including providing sufficient and secure rest areas, food, fuel and bathrooms, as well as repair and maintenance facilities.  Some rest areas on key freight corridors are now open, though may be limited in facilities.  

As these critical supply chains are a regional issue, we want to reach out to the involved agencies and our OCTC members to make you aware of these issues.  This has an impact on all of our local economies.

As COVID19 has enfolded, the I-95 Corridor Coalition recognizes that the trucking industry is actively seeking status information on various areas (travel information, credential status, etc.) along the Corridor and that this page is a resource for them.  

The online CVO Portal focuses I-95 Corridor information of interest to Motor Carriers containing information, as agencies deem to provide, on Commercial Vehicle Operating, Credentialing, Registration, Taxation, and Permitting Requirements, Commercial Driver’s Licensing, Rest Areas and Weigh Stations, Tolling Information and Motor Truck Associations.

What we are experiencing is indeed a stress test of our food supply chain, nationally and globally. But constraints and stress invite creative solutions."
