JURY STILL OUT ON LANDBRIDGE, TRANSPORTATION CONSULTANT SAYS
Some carriers talk up landbridge. Others treat it with skepticism. The full test of the concept still lies ahead, and time will ultimately tell us the real story. But there is enough experience at this point to warrant a close look at landbridge's prospects. At first glace, landbridge semms a sensible and logical method of moving freight between the Orient and Europe. Perhaps one of the causes of hesitation about landbridge is the huge capital investment it needs, and very few transportation organizations are sufficiently loaded with usable cash or credit for such a purpose until others have tried it out and proved its worth. Nobody likes to be first on the dance floor.
