A ton- mile is the standard measure of freight activity. The capability to ef ficiently transport large tonnage over long distances is the main and most important reason railroads continue to handlesignificant intercity tonnage.Highway- Highway transportation has grown fastsince the end of World War II. This growth hasresulted from the ability to operate door to door.Trucks are very flexible because of the ability tooperate on many different roadways. Almost onemillion miles of highway are available to trucks.Trucks have a small fixed investment in terminal Recent Posts Setting UTF-8 as the default encoding for MySQLCreating and including local settings in DjangoTwo-way data binding with an input field in AngularJSInstall vsftpd on Ubuntu 12.04Install ProFTPD on Ubuntu 12.04 Popular Tags arrays   assembly   class   command line computation   contract   database   data types directory   email   error    events   example file   file handling   filestream   form post   formprocessing   functions   Globals   interviewquestions   logistics   looping   mail   MVC numerical   object   object oriented   quality   read reference   regex   risk   rpc   serialization   sessions   social socket   sql query   string   time   variables   views   xml xml parsing 8085/8086C SharpC/C++CSSFlashHTMLJava TutorialsJavascriptLessonsLinuxMYSQLNode.jsOtherPerlPHP/MySQL TutorialsPL/SQLProject ManagementPythonSAPSocial AppsSql ServerVideo Tutorials  10/27/2014Describe the five modes of transportation, identifying the most significant characteristic of each | Supply Chain Management | w3mentor http://w3mentor.com/learn/project-management/supply-chain-management/describe-the-five-modes-of-transportation-identifying-the-most-significant-c…2/4 Tweet 0 facilities and operate on publicly financed andmaintained roads.Water- Water is the oldest mode of transportation.The main advantage of water transport is thecapacity to transport extremely large shipments.Water transport ranks between rail and highwaycarrier in terms of fixed cost.Pipeline- Pipelines account for nearly 70% of allcrude and petroleum ton-mile movements. Naturalgas is also transported using a pipeline system.Pipelines operate on a 24 hour basis and there isno empty container or vehicle that has to bereturned at the end of the day. The fixed costs arehigh but the variable costs are the lowest out of allthe modes of transportation. Air- Air is the newest but least utilized mode of transportation. The most significant advantage of airfreight lies in the speed with which a shipmentcan be transported. Air shipment can be done inhours while the other modes of transportation maytake days.
