1. Via a land bridge, cargo traveling on ocean
liners can cross a land obstacle (such as the US continent) by being unloaded
in one port, transferred to a train, carried across the land obstacle by rail,
and reloaded onto another ship. Using the internet or any other resource,
research and select a particular land bridge (Google: “land bridge rail”).
Provide a brief description of the land bridge and list it specific benefits
(another words, what savings does the land bridge bring?) A minimum of 150. words
2. Project cargo is cargo that is much larger,
heavier, or more complex to handle than regular cargo such as the shipping of
locomotives, railroad cars, large trucks, pleasure boats, large engines,
electric generators, and so on. It generally requires extra preplanning. An
exporter is shipping a milling machine weighing 100 tons from the US to the UK.
You are responsible for performing the preplanning work prior to shipment. List
and briefly discuss at least three items that are important for preplanning
consideration. A minimum of 150.
