Throughout the course, the subject of regulation and
deregulation (government involvement or intervention) and its impact on
intermodal transportation has been discussed. Chapter 15 discusses the role of
government on fostering intermodal transport innovations. The author suggests
that the US government should be the catalyst for innovations in intermodal
transportation. He argues that industry, in a free market economy, has been
limited in their ability to deliver these innovations.

by the government; development of new technologies for DOD is primarily driven
by industry) to support your argument. Reference
