Research Report


This project analyzes the current and future warehouse and distribution center locations along the El Paso-Juarez regions in the United States-Mexico border. This research has developed a comprehensive database to aid in decision support process for identifying potential warehouse and distribution center locations. This database will provide information regarding accessibility, mobility, safety, and economic feasibility of the sites. In addition, truck volumes at four selected sites in El Paso have been collected and analyzed to provide planners information on the expected truck trips that would be generated and attracted in the warehouse and distribution center locations. The observed trip generation and attraction rates are compared with the Institute of Transportation Engineers’ trip generation models.
