Summary

In a world increasingly exposed to terrorism, piracy, and the trafficking of humans and narcotics, companies must ensure their supply chains and transportation networks ensure an efficient flow of goods, without compromising security. This new book on logistics and transportation security addresses the many regulatory, political, and technological developments not covered in existing books. Examining sea, land, and air transportation systems and linkages, this book includes coverage of hazardous material handling, securing transportation networks, logistics essentials, supply chain security, risk assessments, the regulatory framework, strategic planning, and innovation through technology.
