Description

Between America's 1980's deregulation and the 911 Homeland Security re-regulation, there existed a unique period in U.S. commercial history. This book documents the rise of modern logistics with its computerization, RFID, security issues, and recounts the various industry shows as the newly deregulated transportation industry transitioned into the 21st century's modern logistics practice. Heavily footnoted, the book recounts the industry's twists and turns through the author's numerous trade press articles. It also includes fun facts on Circus Ramp history, WWII pilot Butch O'Hare's story as America's first Naval Ace and the Beatles Rock Band's quiet PanAm jet controversy. It also provides information on major players like President Grover Cleveland as the father of the I.C.C., Congressman Harley Staggers as America's rail deregulator and containerization pioneer Malcolm McLean. With transport veteran observations included, this is an excellent book for people that ever worked with trucks or trains or boats and planes - or ports. With the sunset of the 110 year old Interstate Commerce Commission, these 20+ deregulatory years are a fascinating look at a time in American history that has come and gone, and can never come again. Excellent non-fiction with 55 pictures and 9 illustrations or emblems.show more
