By Jason Monios

Whereas the operational realities of intermodal delivery are fairly renowned, the institutional demanding situations are much less good understood. This e-book presents an outline of intermodal delivery and logistics together with the coverage heritage, rising traits and educational techniques. developing the 3 key beneficial properties of intermodal shipping geography as intermodal terminals, inland logistics and hinterland corridors, Jason Monios takes an institutional method of figuring out the problems of profitable intermodal delivery and logistics. Key parts of research comprise the coverage and making plans historical past, the jobs of private and non-private stakeholders and the id of rising method conflicts.Substantial empirical content material situates the theoretical and functional concerns in real-world examples through 3 designated case research chapters (covering the united states, united kingdom and Europe), making the e-book valuable to scholars in addition to practitioners needing an realizing of ways intermodal delivery and logistics paintings in perform. The pointed out demanding situations to intermodal delivery and logistics are used to illustrate how competing port and inland innovations can inhibit the required techniques of integration required to underpin winning intermodal delivery. The e-book concludes with a glance on the way forward for institutional variation that could increase the capability of freight actors to interact with intermodal delivery advancements.

Rail and water generally dominated long hauls because they were cheaper, whereas road haulage would perform shorter journeys, particularly any journey where its natural flexibility and responsiveness made it the natural choice. The role of the public sector was operational in some countries where rail was nationally owned, but otherwise related mostly to regulation (see discussion of the influence of the Staggers Act in the US in Chapter 6). However, as emissions and congestion rose up the government agenda in the 1990s, governments began to see their role as more directly interventionist in order to address the negative externalities of transport.

G. g. limited opportunities for double-stack operation) meant that progress was not as swift nor as successful as in the United States (Charlier and Ridolfi, 1994). Containers and Intermodality Unitised transport refers to the movement of freight in a standardised loading unit, which may be a single consignment of goods or may be a groupage load of smaller consignments managed by a freight forwarder. The unit in question, often referred to as an ‘intermodal transport unit’ (ITU) or ‘intermodal loading unit’ (ILU) may be an ISO maritime container, a swap body or a semi-trailer.

Just as new purpose-built port terminals were built away from their former urban locations, so too were these large distribution nodes, with a focus on the optimal distance to reach several major cities within a region or country, and clustering and agglomeration strategies resulted in large logistics platforms with multiple large tenants. The notion of transport solely as a derived demand has been challenged and reformulated as an integrated demand (Hesse and Rodrigue, 2004; Rodrigue, 2006; Panayides, 2006).
