Changing business practices
  • Outsourcing of supply
  • Internet commerce
  • Tighter management of the supply chain
  • Inventory risk pooling, warehouse consolidation
  • Success of very large importers
  • Just in time operation
  • Productivity improvements
infrastructure development is not the only answer
Infrastructure development is not the only answer

congestion

Ease congestion,

allow for higher speeds,

encourage more driving

Provide more infrastructure

the transportation engineering challenge
The Transportation Engineering Challenge
  • To safely and efficiently move people and goods
  • Not just by designing and building the transportation infrastructure, but by managing the infrastructure and demand for the infrastructure
  • Design a transportation system that is sustainable
intelligent transportation systems
Intelligent Transportation Systems
  • Our ability to do this has developed dramatically with electronic sensors and communication
    • Quantify congestion and compare congestion costs to rationalize investment
    • Use cost to distribute capacity rather than delay
    • Automatically detect and avoid dangers
    • Improve security
    • Operate more efficiently
