The financing of future port facilities will require aggressive marketing efforts as a basis for developing creative financing strategies. The various types of funding for inland port development--federal, state, regional, and local--are outlined. It is concluded that, because of the wide range of requirements for public funds and future prospects for a reduction in available resources at all levels, future inland port development will be largely in the hands of private entrepreneurs and that a sound, integrated public-private financial plan will be a necessity in the 1980s.
