Understanding transportation in NW Minnesota

D2 Manufacturer's Perspective Report

Transportation: From the Manufacturer's Perspective

The Manufacturer's Perspective study seeks to better understand freight customers’ transportation priorities and challenges, and to incorporate their feedback into MnDOT’s planning and project development. A better understanding of these customers’ businesses and transportation needs is helping MnDOT to better align its work to support their success and, by extension, the economic vitality of the region and state.┬áThe project identified concerns and suggested improvements in the areas of infrastructure, maintenance, communications and policy.
