MetadataShow full item record
This study will help better our understanding of the import-export processes in the U.S. It examines the challenges faced by US exporters and importers, and investigates an innovative solution to tackle these challenges. The dry port concept introduced by transportation geographers is discussed, and an intermodal rail costing model is used in determining whether this concept will prove to be a more sustainable and energy efficient system than what currently exists.
