IMPEDIMENTS TO OVERSEAS SHIPPING OF LESS-THAN-CONTAINERLOAD CARGOES

The report surveys the process of intermodal transportation of less-than-containerload (LCL) cargoes in overseas trade, with particular attention to export shipments moving from inland ports. It describes the many entities involved, in one way or another, in cargo movements by land and water combined. Various impediments to efficient LCL movements are discussed under institutional and operational categories. These impediments are rated in order of importance for research. Conclusions and recommendations are given for steps that industry and government could take.
