Increasing capacity at ports and goods movement in the supply chain in general, while also satisfying environmental, economic, political, labor union, and other constraints is, arguably, the greatest challenge of modern transportation. With space at a premium and costs through the roof, it is increasingly obvious that the traditional solutions are not feasible in the short- or even medium-term. However, advances in information technology, telecommunications, data management, and computation tools, coupled with recent research in systems optimization and control, may provide promising new approaches.

Review:

"... addresses aspects of most of the issues affecting throughput for very large container ports. ... well organized, flowing from an introduction to the automation of terminals, then inland terminals as adjuncts to marine seaport terminals, followed by pieces related to container movement logistics."
―Kevin Horn, Journal of the Transportation Research Forum, Vol. 50, No. 2 (Summer 2011), p. 117-119

Synopsis:

With contributions from leading experts, "Intelligent Freight Transportation" presents the latest techniques and technologies to boost capacity, reduce cost, and improve efficiency in metropolitan areas. This book discusses ports and container terminals, how they interact with surface transportation, and related security issues. It provides a chapter devoted to fully automated containers and explains cost and performance analysis. The text also examines new strategies for empty container reuse, truck routing, and dispatching to meet time constraints for service. Additional topics include container terminals of the future, advanced processing technologies, and the gate appointment system.
