In 2007 the Gaston Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (GUAMPO) now GCLMPO, initiated a freight planning study to incorporate freight related issues into planning activities. This studies efforts included three tasks: project coordination, freight assessment, and strategy development. The result of the study is the Gastonia 2007 Freight Study.

The GCLMPO is participating in a regional freight mobility planning process for the greater Charlotte region. This plan is being led by the Centralina Council of Governments. This plan will be complete by the end of 2016. For more information about the process or to get involved, please contact Jessica Hill with Centralina at (704) 348-2731 or
