The purpose of the study was to identify current technical and commercial methods of interchange and pooling. Comprehensive analyses were made of selected methods. Feasible container interchange and pooling alternatives were evaluated in circumstances involving intra-and intermodal equipment operated domestically and internationally. A relationship between pooling and interchange was established. Conclusions were developed about existing impediments to interchanging and pooling intermodal containers used in international service, and the requirements to improved international intermodal interchange and pooling were identified. Existing and developing requirements of shippers and carriers were concurrently assessed for intermodal containers in export/ import trade through 1973, to show the growing importance of international intermodal interchange.
