Intermodal Movement of Marine Containers (MITSG 92-21) is a textbook for use in transporation courses dealing with the changes occurring in the field in the last decade. Written in an engaging format, the book is a series of case studies, based on real-life problems and derived from interviews with the principal parties involved, as well as from scholarly and other sources. Each section identifies a problem in the industry, examines it in depth and provides insight into potential changes. Profiled are the ports of Long Beach, Boston, New York and New Jersey, Seattle and New Orleans, as well as Burlington Northern Railroad, American Automar, Inc., American President Companies, Ltd., and Cast (1983), Ltd.
