November/December 2014

The November-December 2014 issue of Trade and Industry Development is packed full the most current information on the logistics industry and the latest thinking on modes of access to market provided by the top minds in the field as well as in exclusive interviews. From warehousing to ports to intermodal transportation there is an article to let you know what is current in the mode of transportation that is of greatest interest to you.

It begins with the two Outlook articles, one that details the latest state of the warehousing industry along with site selection tips and one that is composed by one of the most authoritative sources on American ports: American Association of Port Authorities. This is a great opportunity to get up to date on this incredibly important mode of access to market.

In addition, the Feature article, “The Re-Emergence of the Iron Horse,” will enlighten you about a grand new trend in logistics: rail cargo transportation and intermodal transportation, which is a combination of truck and rail.

To top off the coverage of logistics, two Trade & Industry Development staff-written articles provide exclusive interviews with economic development agencies and corporations located in their regions on the topic of ports and inland ports, as well as a site selectors’ guide to areas that are notable for their ease of access to market via various modes of product transportation.

But it doesn’t stop there. This November-December 2014 issue also features two insightful articles on major manufacturing sectors of the U.S. economy: metal working and fabrication as well as plastics and its use in automotive and aerospace/aircraft manufacturing.
