The report summarizes the experiences with automated freight handling; stratified charge engines; LP gas (propane) propulsion; TSM methods; service vehicle "van pools"; and electric trucks. Due to the varying stages of advancement of research, development, and application for each technology included, varying amounts of material are available.
