Welcome to the California Freight Mobility Plan (CFMP) website. This website provides information on the CFMP and is a portal for the public to ask questions and provide input.
What is the CFMP?
The CFMP is a statewide, long-range plan with the following vision for the movement of freight in California:
As the national gateway for international trade and domestic commerce, California enhances economic competitiveness by collaboratively developing and operating an integrated, multimodal freight transportation system that provides safe, sustainable freight mobility. This system facilitates the reliable and efficient movement of freight and people while ensuring a prosperous economy, social equity, and human and environmental health.
The CFMP complies with the relevant provisions of the federal Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act, which encourages each state to develop a freight plan, as well as AB 14 (Lowenthal, 2013), which requires the preparation of a California state freight plan.
To learn more about the CFMP please browse our CFMP Factsheet and CFMP Introductory Powerpoint.
California Freight Advisory Committee
Development of the CFMP is guided by the California Freight Advisory Committee (CFAC). The CFAC is an advisory committee to the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) and Caltrans consisting of a representative cross section of public and private freight stakeholders across California.

Please join us at one of our upcoming public meetings in June and July, 2014. We will be presenting the Public Review Draft of the CFMP, which addresses the future of freight in California. The CFMP public workshops will be held in an interactive, open house format. When participants arrive they can learn about the plan, discuss questions and comments with staff, fill out comment cards, and answer questions that will gauge the public’s interest, preference, or perception on several elements of the plan. Visitors can arrive at their convenience from 4PM-7PM and move through the workshop at their own pace. A Spanish language interpreter will also be available at all of the workshops.
