Education & Training
The course is based on experience gained from conducting intermodal freight technology research at marine intermodal terminals as well as Class 1, Regional, and Short Line Railroad intermodal terminals across the country. Marine ports studied in preparation for this course include:
Comments from students that have taken the course include:
In addition to intermodal freight technology research, this course provides a thorough understanding of the Intelligent Transportation Systems technologies, including those found in Commercial Vehicle Operations, Advanced Traffic Management Systems, Advanced Traveler Information Systems, Advanced Vehicle Control and Safety Systems and clearly illustrates the link between these systems and the intermodal freight community. This course discusses the challenges faced by the intermodal freight community, provides detailed descriptions of the successful collaborations (public/private partnerships) that have developed, and also discusses funding mechanisms that are available to increase operational efficiencies, increase safety, and improve environmental conditions.
The objectives of the course include:
Students will explore the potential for leveraging existing technology deployments (both public and private) to achieve greater transportation efficiencies.
This course is presented in a way that can be understood by audiences unfamiliar with "ITS" and/or who possess a limited knowledge of freight movement. The value-added resource materials will mimic the presentation and discussion material and are designed to be used as a reference tool long after the class has ended. See the Award Nomination for more details on course content.
