Extensive transportation systems, which include highways, rivers, Great Lakes ports, railroads, airports, and pipelines, link Minnesota to markets throughout the North American Continent. This study provides a comprehensive source of freight flow information in Minnesota and shows the ways in which the transportation systems support business and commerce. It draws upon data and analysis developed over the past five years with contributions from the University of Minnesota's Center for Transportation Studies and the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The report summarizes the freight flows in, out, through, and within Minnesota in 1990 by model and in some cases by major commodity and major origin or destination.
