Six Sessions









This course will provide an in-depth tour of the global trading network and the transportation modes (trucks, ships, trains, etc.) that deliver the “stuff” in our lives. We will start with the trading blocs and networks that shape global and domestic commerce, then expand our focus to the role of each mode: the seaports, airports, rail yards, truck depots and warehouses that support and interconnect goods movement. We will touch on the major technological shifts taking place, and critical crosscutting economic and environmental impacts.
