Pulitzer Prize–winning author Edward Humes discusses the issues and concerns of the global transportation system in this comprehensive, insightful report on transport to and within the United States. As he proved in his fascinating book Garbology, Humes has a gift for humanizing industrial trends and making complex logistics easy to understand. He explains five significant trends shaping the “global transportation revolution”: containerization, digital 3D printing, the “re-shoring” of manufacturing back to the US from China, ride-sharing services and driverless vehicles. Humes, writing with a reporter’s deft hand, also offers recommendations for fixing the system’s ills, which include America’s worn out transportation infrastructure and the pollution that results from shipping items “door-to-door” around the globe. getAbstract recommends his detailed overview to investors, manufacturers, futurists, academics, and any consumer seeking to understand the complex US and global logistics systems.
