Written in a clear language, for use by scholars, managers and decisionmakers, this practical guide to the hot topic is unique in treating the

security aspects of hazmat transportation from both uni–modal and multi–modal perspectives. To begin with, each transport mode and its

relation to security vulnerability, analyses, figures, and approaches is discussed separately. Secondly, the optimization process of a hazmat

supply chain is examined from a holistic, integrated viewpoint. Finally, the book discusses and compares the various hazmat transport security

policies and strategies adopted in various regions around the world. The result is a must–have source of high–quality information including

many case studies.
