MoTC collects data to develop Qatar Freight Master Plan

The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC) is currently considering the Qatar Freight Master Plan (QFMP), which is expected to be finalised by the end of 2022. MoTC is in the process of collecting data and conducting relevant surveys and questionnaires. This effort includes collecting a wide range of freight-related information on origins, routes and destinations of freight movements, the flow rate of trucks at major junctions, as well as other qualitative and quantitative data on the performance of freight industry across Qatar in general. Field surveys are collecting data needed to develop the QFMP.
Extensive data will be collected through traffic counts on roads, traffic counts on junctions using cameras, measuring trip duration on existing roads, classifying the vehicles including all types of trucks, and conducting surveys and questionnaires with employers and staff of construction, logistics, heavy and light transportation and freight services companies.
