Abstract
This paper defines the emerging intermodal issues, identifies alternative
solutions and develops strategies to achieve them. It reviews intermodal logistics
policies in the EU, NAFTA and Asia, focusing on the United States and Japan in
NAFTA and Asia respectively, because they have been the prominent motors of
international trade in their regions. From an Asian standpoint, it is a pity that it is
not yet possible to report on a common intermodal strategy.Since the 1980s the ecnomic development of countries in East Asia has had a
marked impact on the world port community, particularly in container transport.
This paper analyses changes in the competitive environment of the world container
port sector using some standard tools of market concentration. Initially, this paper
reviews the competitive position of world container port system and then examines
the East Asian economis environment. Both ordinal and cardinal measures of port
system inequality are used to demonstrate both the rankings and levels of container
throughput have been diverging in the world's major economic blocs. Conversely,
East Asian conutries during the 1990s have shown a trend towards convergence.
Measures of dispersion suggest that port in East Asian countries have become
more competitive in their levels of container throughput
