About Us


The Mack-Blackwell Transportation Center (MBTC) has led a U.S. Department of Transportation University Transportation Center since 1992 . MBTC builds on its geographic access to road, river, and rail corridors and industry access to global logistics leaders (including Wal-Mart Stores, J.B. Hunt Transport, and ABF Freight Systems) to lead nationally relevant multimodal research to carry people and freight to their destinations efficiently and effectively. MBTC works closely with the Arkansas Department of Transportation and many other transportation stakeholders across the nation. MBTC has managed transportation research subcontracts at fifteen other universities in thirteen states.
