COURSE: 47-457 Multimodal Operations (3)
Multimodal transportation involves the use of two or more modes of transportation in moving a shipment from origin to destination, primarily through the use of a container.  This multimodal service combines the advantages of each mode used.  The growth of multimodal transportation has been aided by deregulation in the US and by growth in global business.  Intermodal operations are the junctions where containers are transferred from one mode to another.  Students will study the administrative and managerial aspects of these intermodal facilities. Prerequisite: 47-201, 47-250, 13-120, 46-201.
