Abstract
In the 21th Century, a region's growth and prosperity will depend upon its
intermodal transportation infrastructure and its ability to efficiently move goods,
materials, and people within the system whether it be from origin to destination;
from supplier to customer through the various levels of the supply-chain; or from
point to point within the system. Planning for the future focuses on improving a
region's intermodal transportation system efficiencies and infrastructure, its
connection to other economies, and on the development of logistic institutions and
facilities.
With China's rapidly developing economy and society, record numbers of new
moden facilities such as airport, pors highways, logistics parks and warehouses
are being built. Along with this, companies have made extensive investments in
information technologies and software to support the tremendous growth that has
taken place in the logistics industry. The development and improvement of China's
historic inland water transport system is essential to their continued future growth
and prosperty. In Korea, past and present National Governments have
emphasized the importance of developing a North East Asian Logistics and
Business Hub in their region and have worked on strategies, which include water
transport, as part of an important national agenda to that end.
This article looks at how trade flows in the Yangtze and Yellow Sea Regions
and between China and South Korea might be enhanced by application of
improved shipping methods in marine commerce that will promote economic
growth in the region. The application of logistics practices and use of barges is
explored for the movement of containers on inland and coastal waterways as well
as in short sea shipping which could greatly facilitate the region's situation with
respect to future economic growth
