Evaluating Alternatives for Landside Transport of Ocean Containers

This report provides a systematic method for evaluating alternatives to diesel trucks for ocean container transport to or from deep-water ocean ports and inland destinations within 100 miles. The report contains information on all known, active inland container transport proposals, based primarily on previous work in Southern California on zero-emissions container movement systems. The report also contains a set of proposed performance-based criteria reflecting the transportation, emissions, energy utilization, and congestion relief objectives and cost implications of alternative inland transport options. The criteria can be used to guide evaluations of potential alternative container transport technology and systems, both in the abstract and in specific port and terminal applications.
