INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES FOR FREIGHT TRANSPORT

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is looking into utilizing innovative transportation technologies for container transfer between Newark and Elizabeth port terminals and inland locations. These new technologies would facilitate the expected growth in port traffic while increasing port productivity, reducing traffic congestion on highways and improving environmental impacts. Lazar Spasovic and his NCTIP research team have identified potential candidate technologies and are developing a methodology for evaluating and selecting the most promising ones.
