    Let me review the applications, many are quite specific for SANDAG, and have to do with our Regional Transportation Plan.

    It is very important, that we commissioned this study because we thought it would be of interest to stakeholder groups such as yourselves, so I am very pleased to be part of todays discussion

    I want to review the many data sources that we had to analyze to put this together, and emphasize that while we had a top shelf economics and freight forecasting team, freight flow data has many challenges, holes, and a general need for a certain level on informed interpolation.Some things we all know

    Otay Mesa the largest gateway in volume and value1.5M trucks year$54B value of all imported and exported goods95% truck move region.BUT the study includes something that we did not previously know with accuracy, that is Internal circulation of good, goods that are the regular items picked up and delivered in the region (food, clothing, consumer durables etc)

    (You can add to the new items from the study: OD data, Assessing what existing database was missing, and Identifying capacity issues and their implication on the freight flow.)Typical day at the OM commercial crossing (June 2006 at noon).This chart shows the economic opportunities for growth in trade for both exports to Mexico and Imports from Mexico.

    The US economic impacts of $1.2B represent about 13% of exports to Mexico in 2005 via de Otay Mesa and Tecate POEs.

    Mexicos economic impacts of more than $2B represent 15% of imports through OM and Tecate in 2005.
