SOME OF THE CRITICAL FACTORS FOR THE FUTURE. MARITIME TRANSPORTATION STRATEGIC PLANNING. PROCEEDINGS OF A TRB WORKSHOP, JUNE 5-7, 1991, WASHINGTON, D.C.

This workshop presentation, part of the round table summary, discusses some issues in maritime/intermodal strategic planning which were not covered in the workshop discussions and which might be addressed in future meetings. One such item is an industry structure analysis including a competitive assessment. Another is an elementary analysis of where the money is in this business. As another, it might be beneficial to have the chief strategy officer or the general manager of a number of companies give additional insight on how their strategic planning occurs and what steps they use. Also, more spokesmen for foreign interests might add to the discussions. In conclusion, it is suggested that the Transportation Research Board (TRB) and the Maritime Administration (MARAD) examine research and study proposals over the last several years and documentation that came about through the 1989 and 1990 DOT hearings on the subject, to develop a consensus as to whether or not there is a need to push for a national policy for maritime/intermodal interests, either short-term or long-term.
