Special Issue on: "Revenue Management in Transportation Services"

Guest Editors: L. Douglas Smith and James F. Campbell, University of Missouri-St. Louis, USA

Revenue and yield management are strongly identified with the dynamic pricing of fares for commercial air travel and the discounting of tariffs by freight carriers to attract and retain business. This special issue, while recognizing recent innovation in these traditional areas, will emphasize applied research on other topics important to the generation of revenue from transportation services.

The selected papers will comprise original research (quantitative and qualitative) that is pertinent to the development of transportation policy and improvement of transportation services. It will also address the interplay between transportation services and revenue management in domestic and international supply chains.
