The Colorado Freight Advisory Council (FAC) advises CDOT and other organizations on the needs of the transportation system in Colorado pertaining to freight and commercial transportation. The FAC provides guidance on policy and planning level activities and identifies strategies and tactics to address operational needs of the system.  FAC members represent a cross-section of freight industry stakeholders. 

Mission of the Freight Advisory Council:

The Freight Advisory Council will serve as a forum for the private sector to advocate for commercial transportation needs, influence transportation policy, and collaborate with partners to develop a transportation system which supports the economic vitality of Colorado by providing for the safe, efficient, coordinated and reliable movement of freight.

  • Advise CDOT on freight-related issues, priorities, projects, and funding needs.
  • Educate the public, decision-makers and other stakeholders on the importance of freight, its connection to the economy, and its reliance on the transportation system.
  • Serve as a forum to discuss opportunities and strategies to influence freight-related transportation decisions.
  • Seek opportunities for leveraging partnerships to improve freight movement.
  • Collaborate with other agencies and organizations on data and information sharing to promote informed decision making.
