The Institute for Trade and Transportation Studies provides research data and expert opinions to its Members concerning the effects of commercial freight movements on domestic and international activities, with reference to infrastructure and transportation needs, and safety implications.
ITTS evolved from the Latin American Trade and Transportation Studies, funded by the member State Departments of Transportation and the Federal Government. The website contains information on both the LATTS projects and the current work of ITTS.
This website contains the outputs from the initial work on Latin America, entitled the “Latin American Trade and Transportation Study” (LATTS I) and the second phase, LATTS 2. The website also includes links to regional freight and economic information, and current research undertaken by ITTS.
