STUDY OF CONTAINER INTERCHANGE AND POOLING FACILITIES IN UNITED STATES EXPORT-IMPORT TRAFFIC

The study is concerned with determining whether container pooling and interchange facilities offer workable alternatives to existing methods of operation. One of the steps required to make this determination is to investigate and evaluate the present situation concerning containerized cargo. The study reviews the state of the art in container pooling; foreign pooling considerations, current pooling arrangements, domestic intermodality, consortiums, leasing considerations, existing repair facilities, etc. The study also evaluates the current container pooling system, projects containerizable tonnage, gives alternatives to current pooling practices, studies the process of implementing a pooling network, and presents conclusions and recommendations.
