Intermodal Transportation: Dubai Port and Dubai Rail
Intermodal transportation offers great opportunity for growth in Dubai. This study discusses logistics capabilities at the Jebel Ali Port and the Etihad Rail. The current technological and social factors of Dubai are addressed, including port technology, RFID tracking, and the proposed Hyperloop 2020. Lack of intermodal transportation data was available which created limitations, as discussed in the paper. I recommend three strategies to integrate the Jebel Ali Port into a wider logistics network: (1) Identify RFID productivity in port and rail shipments, (2) configure tracking at node transfers, and (3) execute transportation network plan throughout the GCC.
