This chapter aims to raise awareness about the importance of the specific consideration of the needs of Freight and Service Activity (FSA) in transportation planning and management efforts. It also aims to exemplify the potential application of establishment‐level FSA models to support these efforts. FSA encompasses a wide range of activities performed at commercial establishments. The freight side of FSA represents the pick‐up and delivery activity associated with the production and consumption of supplies. The chapter provides a summary of key features of urban economies and their relation to FSA. It briefly describes the data and approach used to estimate FSA models. The chapter summarizes the chief findings of the research. FSA models have multiple practical applications. This is possible because the establishment‐level nature of these models allows them to be used at various levels of geography, ranging from the state/metropolitan level to local analyses at the building level.
