Policy makers also have an interest in developing systems that balance the safety/security needs of their constituents with business/consumer objectives. Furthermore, long-term sustainability is an important goal of any system.

More on this journal...

The objective of WRITR is to act as a catalyst for the international exchange of ideas, knowledge, and skills relating to transportation systems, supply chain management, and logistics. It is intended to benefit businesses, policy makers, and researchers from both the developed and the developing world.


WRITR is designed to provide individuals, managers, professionals, researchers, and policy makers with the tools to understand not only the individual modes of transportation, but also the linkage between the various modes and their impact on supply chain management and firm performance. It is a forum for these same groups to disseminate ideas and best practices from their fields or regions of the world.


WRITR publishes original papers, review papers, conceptual papers, business and management case studies, conference reports, and book reviews of relevant topics.
