INTEGRATED INFRASTRUCTURES FOR MOVING GOODS IN THE DIGITAL AGE. IN: MOVING PEOPLE, GOODS, AND INFORMATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY: THE CUTTING-EDGE INFRASTRUCTURES OF NETWORKED CITIES

This chapter on integrated infrastructures for moving goods in the Digital Age is from a book on moving people, goods, and information in the 21st century. The author contends that new approaches to business strategy demand integrated infrastructures enabled by new intelligent software technologies that can manage the increasing complexity of the logistics task. The author addresses critical advances in knowledge management, information technology, intelligent software, and transportation infrastructure that will enable cities, and their industries, to build vital ties to these emerging digital supply chains. Specific topics include intelligent logistics environments, the use of aviation-based multimodal systems, and intelligent cargo management systems. The author concludes that cutting-edge cities must provide aviation services supported by multimodal capabilities through which companies can offer their customers end-to-end services; information and communications technologies that enable globally dispersed enterprises to conduct business with their partners on the other side of the world as if they were virtual neighbors; and a regulatory environment that supports trade and global commerce.
