Currently, there is no efficient way to estimate emissions from traffic on big transportation networks, such as the freeway links that connect downtown Los Angeles to the San Pedro Bay Ports complex. This transportation corridor is particularly vital because the ports handle more than a third of the U.S. container trade. Yet the economic vitality of this area is threatened by congestion and air pollution from freight operations.
