Description

Written in a simple, non-technical style, this highly regarded book has now been fully updated to explore the major and continuing changes in transport and logistics operations. Awareness of these changes is necessary in order to develop a broad understanding of the industry. Covering all modes of transportation, the text is fully illustrated with photographs of transport systems for many countries. Additionally, the book considers the increasingly important environmental impact of the industry.

Establised since 1965 as a recommended text for the Professional Qualifying Examinations of the Chartered Institute of Transport, International Transport, previously titled Principles of Transport

has continued to be in great demand. This new edition has been completely revised to reflect the CIT's new examination syllabus. Aimed at transport professionals all over the world, this book provides a sound introduction to the key issues in transport.

About the author: Rex W. Faulks has had a long and impressive career in the transport industry. He is a Fellow of the CIT and former lecturer and examiner. As a transport consultant he has worked all over the world, including Africa, Canada, the Far East, India, China, and the USA.
