Areas of Expertise
I have been in the freight transportation business since 1979. As a consultant for over 25 years, I found a full-service transportation and logistics provider. I specialize in surface freight transportation markets, operations, economics, and technologies with an emphasis on intermodal applications. I served five years as an Air Force officer. I am a former chairman of the Transportation Research Board’s (TRB) Committee on Intermodal Freight Transport. I am also a former member of American Association of Railroad's Intermodal Productivity Task Force, the TRB's Study Committee on Landside Access to U.S. Ports, and the TRB’s Intermodal Terminal Design Committee. My work has been published in several trade journals and I am a frequent presenter at industry trade shows and meetings. I have served as an expert witness in several cases, most often dealing with the surface freight transportation commercial and operational practices.
