Port and Terminal Developments


Write a 2-3 page paper on a transportation topic from chapter 6 or 7 of the Elger text. Textbook is titled The Future of Intermodal Freight Transport (Published by Edward Elgar Publishing Limited)

Dear Writer,
Below are the instructions from my professor. As you will see, I need you to draft a separate outline that I have to turn in separate from my paper. For this paper I have chosen the main topic “Port and Terminal Developments”. Below are some subtopics from the textbook that you can include in the paper if you choose.
1. Developments in Terminal Handling Systems
2. Landside Operations
3. Gate Operations with Increased Automation
4. Automated Handling of the Truck Interface
5. Partnership Between Trucking and Terminals

Specific Instructions from my Professor:
You will write an outline that organizes your paper and includes an introduction and a conclusion. This is a separate deliverable and is intended to assist students in writing outlines and organization.

The paper should demonstrate your understanding of the transportation topic and should follow this format (you must use APA headings to mark each section below or points will be deducted):
• Introduction
• Background
• The pros to your concept (bring in outside source)
• The opposing points of view (bring in outside source)
• Conclusion
• Include a cover page and list of References

This midterm paper must be in APA format, double spaced (no extra space between paragraphs) using 12-point font and include at least three references.

Course title is Intermodal Transportation. See attachment for assignment details. I need a one page outline and 2 pages for body of paper.
