Abstract

In our Spring 2013 issue of the Transportation Journal, w e present a variety of transportation and logistics topics. In the United States, the motor car- rier industry accounts for a large portion of transportation costs. In their research, Williams, Garver, and Taylor use a novel research method to pres- ent new knowledge about selection criteria applied to less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers by different segments of shippers who use LTL services. As nations and regions deal with trying to minimize socioeconomic impacts of transportation, they face dilemmas in allocating limited funds. Ludvigsen, Brechan, and Klæboe analyze the opinions of the European public regard- ing the European Union’s decision to invest public funds in freight railways to achieve an improved balance of transportation environmental impacts. Despite reports to the contrary, international sourcing continues to be strong in current supply chain management. Mejza, Laosirihongthong, and Prajogo compare Japanese and American supplier relationships of automo- tive suppliers who do business in Thailand. As a multitude of factors have constrained ocean port expansion in many regions, inland ports have often been developed to complement the coastal port operations. Zeng, Maloni, Paul, and Yang present an overview of inland port development in China. In the
