Goods Movement Efficiency Study RFP

Name Goods Movement Efficiency Study RFP

MTC is seeking a consultant to conduct a study regarding improving goods movement efficiency and competetiveness in the Northern California Mega-region.  This study seeks to build off multiple recent goods movement planning studies, economic analyses, and corridor studies that have been conducted in the mega-region and drill down to identify challenges and opportunities for firms operating in the so-called “goods movement cluster.” This includes not only core industries (rail, trucking, air, water), but also direct supply and input (e.g. warehousing, consulting, leasing, packaging), indirect support (e.g. port operations, infrastructure, support industries), and customer industries (e.g. freight transportation arrangement, couriers, wholesale agents). The study will illuminate the specializations of the northern California goods movement cluster, and identify specific high priority transportation infrastructure needs, operational policies to improve key system bottlenecks and improve access to critical activity centers, and workforce and innovation challenges and opportunities.

Interested firms must submit their proposal by 4:00 p.m. on Friday August 12, 2016, in accordance with the instructions contained in the RFP.  A non-mandatory proposers conference will be held at 10:00 a.m. on August 2, 2016, at the Bay Area Metro Center Building, 375 Beale Street, San Francisco, in Conference Room 6102.  Other key RFP Dates are listed in Section V, Consultant Selection Timetable of the RFP.
