The logistics and transportation industry pervades nearly every area of our lives because virtually everything we use or consume had to be transported to us in some manner, through some aspect of today’s transportation system. The transportation system is made up of a network of highways, pipelines, rail transit, and waterways over which it moves goods and people. It links natural resources, manufacturing facilities, labor markets, and customers across the United States as well as with international sources. This course provides an overview of the transportation industry and its subsectors of the transportation industry both in the present and future.
