Recently, demand of freight transport increases tremendously and cause serious impacts on traffic congestion and air quality. In 2015, The Department of Land Transport of Thailand has introduced a project named "Nationwide Confidence with GPS Onboard" to install GPS tracking system on all trucks in Thailand. This project provides new sources of data in analyzing the freight-related traffics and designing remedial measures for freight-related issues. This paper aims to demonstrate the use of GPS data in determining truck activities, estimating truck origin-destination matrix and estimating the flow of different commodities. Thailand is used as a case study to demonstrate the results.
