Description

Written in a clear language, for use by scholars, managers and decisionmakers, this practical guide to the hot topic is unique in treating the
security aspects of hazmat transportation from both uni-modal and multi-modal perspectives. To begin with, each transport mode and its
relation to security vulnerability, analyses, figures, and approaches is discussed separately. Secondly, the optimization process of a hazmat
supply chain is examined from a holistic, integrated viewpoint. Finally, the book discusses and compares the various hazmat transport security
policies and strategies adopted in various regions around the world. The result is a must-have source of high-quality information including
many case studies.
