INTERMODAL MOVEMENT OF MARINE CONTAINERS. INSTRUCTOR'S GUIDE
The purpose of this manual is to present a course related to transportation or logistics management. It is assumed that students using this book have an elementary background in transportation, engineering economics, and management. They should know what the different types of ships are (e.g., containerships, roll-on/roll-off) and a little about their operations. The students should also understand discounted cash flows and net present value. It is also assumed that they know how to read a financial statement and can perform elementary financial ratio analysis (e.g., debt/equity ratio, profit/revenue). If these assumptions are not correct, the instructor must teach topics as early as possible during the term. This book can be easily used to teach about eleven 1.5 hour sessions. The eleven value assumes one session per chapter, although the instructor may wish to spend more time on a particular case study.
