9781783474813: Multimodal Transport Security: Frameworks and Policy Applications in Freight and Passenger Transport (Comparative Perspectives on Transportation Security series)

'With all the excitement in the field of transport surrounding issues like electric propulsion, shared mobility and self-driving vehicles, the way forward to sustainable transport still depends on our ability to integrate the various modes of transport into one efficient and secure transport system. This book and the four expert editors are the much needed voice of advocacy for this, almost forgotten, subject. The book is an important education tool for understanding multimodality and for thinking 'multimodal'.'
- Moshe Givoni, Tel Aviv University, Israel

'Transport - of both people and goods - is a necessary condition for an open and interconnected world. The achievement of efficient transport systems calls for interlinked transport modes that are smart and effective, based on a systemic perspective. To avoid fragile transport operations, transport systems need to be robust with a high level of security, so that transport vulnerability can be avoided, especially in intermodal transport connections. This is a timely publication on a worldwide concern in the modern transport field, highlighting the importance of secure intermodal transport systems. It offers both conceptual and applied research perspectives on currently prevailing issues and challenges in this field, supported by various relevant case studies. The topics addressed are of critical importance for both the research community and transport operators, as well as for policy making agencies.'
- Peter Nijkamp, VU University, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Rapid globalisation has led to the realization that the traditional modal approach to transporting people and goods is insufficient. Multimodal Transport Security illustrates the inevitable shift towards multimodal transportation systems, further enabled by modern technological innovations, and succinctly assesses the demanding and new security challenges that have accompanied this.

The emergence of these complex transportation infrastructures has created exceedingly attractive terrorist targets owing to the potential for wide-scale disruption of global supply chains. Providing a conjoint analysis of key issues in both passenger and freight multimodal transportation security, expert contributors provide pivotal case studies highlighting the successes and failures of various policies and practices across several geographical regions. Adeptly drawing these strands together, the editors identify similarities and heterogeneities and in doing so, produce a practical illustration of the potential for further enhancement of multimodal security.

An ever-increasing and worldwide concern with the improvement of security in transport places this unique and comprehensive text at the forefront of transportation literature. It will be of great value to students and scholars of public policy as well as policy makers in the fields of transportation and counter-terrorism.
