TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT: A DISCIPLINE IN TRANSITION

In the face of dramatic changes in the traffic management function over the past decade, such as computer applications, deregulation, globalization of business, and mergers and acquisitions, uncertainties have risen concerning the true state of traffic management. General questions began to emerge: (1) How has the traffic discipline changed since 1980? (2) What caused these changes? (3) How will the discipline evolve over the next ten years? and (4) What are the career prospects of the traffic manager? In an effort to provide answers, the American Society of Transportation and Logistics decided to sponsor and publish an in-depth analysis of the history, current state, and future of the traffic function. This article provides an overview and summary of some of the key findings of this study.
