T0317 due week 10
International Intermodals / Hubs
After reading further background material on the concept of an intermodal company and relevant case studies on related companies, prepare a 2500 word report analysing the important features of an intermodal. This can be located in Australia or an international location (i.e. ACFS in Australia).
Identify logistics management strategies to resolve any issues related to the operational aspects of the company.
In your report you need to consider:
The main problems at with the current logistics network in NSW or as it applies to the city where your intermodal is located
How they might be resolved
What, if any, involvement should the NSW Government have in the resolution of the problems
Sustainability should be used here from chapter 14 along with learning outcomes from week 7 to week 10.
To support your analysis and recommendations, you need to:
Use a minimum of 8 academic journal articles, plus the text supporting your identification of problems and proposals / recommendations to resolve the problems (better marks will be awarded for more than 8).
As a report is due the usual formatting applies.
