Abstract:

"Trucking in the Age of Information provides a comprehensive overview of the contemporary trucking industry. Prior research on trucking has focused on the effects of deregulation on the industry, but the industry's current transformation is driven by information technology, emerging business strategies, globalization of commodity production and the rise of package express and logistics. The volume brings together acknowledged and emerging scholars of the industry including Thomas Corsi (University of Maryland), Chelsea White III (Georgia Tech), Starr McMullen (Oregon State University), Will Mitchell (Duke University), Jeff Liker (University of Michigan), Francine LaFontaine (University of Michigan), Kristen Monaco (California State University at Long Beach) and Michael Conyngham (International Brotherhood of Teamsters) to address issues including technological change, third party logistics, lean trucking, driver safety and health, homeland security and the consolidation of trucking services. Each chapter provides an overview of industry issues and a discussion of current research."--Provided by publisher.
