The Future of Intermodal Freight Transport: Operations, Design and Policy (Transport Economics, Management and Policy)

This ebook explores the varied demanding situations to extend using intermodal shipping structures in freight delivery. In view of the present dominant position of street delivery and the expanding problems in dealing with becoming variety of cars in an effective and sustainable method, intermodal freight shipping can be thought of a workable substitute.

Transportation and Behavior

The current quantity in our sequence, Human habit and setting, is dedicated to a particular subject, carrying on with the development validated within the final volumes. the present subject is behavioral technology elements of trans­ portation. This subject used to be selected to exemplify an issue quarter of sensible import to which psychologists, sociologists, and different behavioral and social scientists could make and feature been making remarkable contributions.
