TRANSPORTATION PRODUCTIVITY: BARRIERS AND BREAKTHROUGHS

The papers presented here represent the objective of this meeting which was to examine a wide variety of ideas concerning efficiency and productivity in transportation and logistics management, and to learn about opportunities for their successful implementation, as well as to assess the constraints which are inevitably associated with any attempt at improvement. Seminar type activites at the meeting included such topics as sales estimating and inventory planning, management by objectives, truck and freight car leasing alternatives, distribution innovations, computerized systems, and the role of the railroads in a period of energy uncertainity. Panel discussions provided timely points of view regarding the U.S. Railway Association, and academic progress in transportation (do they meet the needs of industry?). Observations were also made on the content of contemporary AST&T examinations.
