Globalized Freight Transport: Intermodality, E-commerce, Logistics, And Sustainability

Globalized Freight Transport: Intermodality, E-commerce, Logistics, And Sustainability (Transport Economics, Management, and Policy) by Thomas R. Leinbach
English | 2007 | ISBN: 1845425022 | 301 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

The worldwide movement of freight has emerged as one of the most critical and dynamic aspects of the transport sector.
The contributors to this study examine the current state of global freight transport, with an emphasis on Europe and North America and their extra-regional linkages. These original contributions synthesize existing knowledge, highlight new developments, problems and possible solutions, and underscore the need for further research. The book's starting point is the fact that freight transport is the main element supporting global supply and commodity chains, from the transformation of raw materials to market distribution and after-market services. However, as the authors point out, the rising costs associated with security and various other constraints, as well as the complexity of getting goods delivered, is adding to profit pressures faced by manufacturers around the globe. Despite the application of technology and increasingly efficient solutions to the movement of freight, constraint points and conditions obstructing smooth operations and sustainability have developed. These difficulties affect both the environment and economic growth. Examining the issues from four critical perspectives - intermodality, e-commerce and technology, logistics, and sustainability - "Global Freight Transport" captures the concern for the viability of freight systems and the ways they are impacting the global economy. This cutting-edge study will be of great interest to students and scholars of transportation, as well as to public sector policymakers and private sector managers.
