Combining organizational logistics with a strong focus on economic performance, this is the ideal text for all students of transport economics and management. This unique approach ensures that the reader will be ideally positioned to study all aspects of the transport course. Within the broad context of the supply chain that serves the transport task, topics covered include; the environment, deregulation and competitive tendering, market demand, costs and prices, and strategic management. The roles of people, work, and organizations within the supply chain are emphasized throughout the book. The text is well balanced with coverage of both theoretical management and its practical application in the transportation sector. Up-to-date case studies illustrate key issues in an accessible manner, and each chapter ends with discussion questions relating to the key issues covered. These features result in a thorough and practical guide to the subject, providing students with an unsurpassed reference to all aspects of the transport sector.

`...This is an excellent book. It brings together in one volume everything a transport manager needs to know about economics and management science...No other book covers this ground, and even in the specific transport economics area no book is so up to date or thorough.' Professor Chris Nash, Institue for Transport Studies, University of Leeds `...up-to-date with current policy and illustrated with contemporary case studies...I shall now turn to this book as a primary source when faced with the task of getting an understanding of elements of transport economics. I recommend this book to other teachers, researchers, consultants and students as well as managers as an up-to-date and authoritative source.' Saad Yousif, Lecturer at the University of Salford, Division of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Salford University
