Book review: Rob Konings, Hugo Priemus and Peter Nijkamp (2008) The Future of Intermodal Freight Transport Operations, Design and Policy
In another recent book review published in the European Journal of Transport and Infrastructure Research, David Banister (2008) wrote “Having read this book, one is left with a feeling that the important issues raised should have been at the forefront of policy debates for many decades, not just now”. I have to confess that I have exactly the same feeling after having read “The Future of Intermodal Freight Transport”. Indeed, this book explores the important challenge of increasing the scope of intermodal freight transport, and I remember the same question was already an issue in the 80', when I was a young researcher. This reflection, however, does not affect the overall quality of this book.
