Transportation Research Board, Jan 1, 1998 - Containerization - 113 pages
This conference was the fifth in a continuing series of conferences and workshops on intermodalism that have been organized by the Transportation Research Board (TRB) since the passage of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA). The objective of the conference was to examine educational and training needs related to all aspects of intermodal transportation: technology, advanced logistics, information systems, planning, and management. Over a 3-day period, participants reviewed existing and developing transportation education programs across all disciplines and examined the roles of educational institutions, private industry, and government in setting an agenda for meeting intermodal transportation education and training needs. These proceedings contain the Chairman's summary, welcoming remarks, keynote address, case studies, status reports on current programs, and the response of a panel of distinguished transportation professionals to the conference findings.
