London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/10/2013 -- Innovation could be necessary when it comes to meeting the demands of transportation in the future, a leading industry expert suggests. Senior vice president of US supermarket chain H-E-B Grocery Co's supply chain and logistics' division Mike n , recently spoke at Texas Lyceum’s 27th Public Conference, which touched on infrastructure and how it can be developed to benefit the transportation industry.
The company's vice president touched on how improving and building on infrastructure itself might not be adequate when it comes to coping with future demands. So instead of constructing more roads and rail routes, transportation companies could instead be encouraged to innovate newer ways to move products. As an example, Graham highlighted how in 1970s, stack trains were introduced that increased efficiency by 100 per cent, without too much change needed to rail networks. In addition improved technology in air traffic control could see a 50 per cent increase in air traffic, allowing an increase in international and national trade.
This could prove interesting to firms and innovators operating in this sector, including Perry Mandera entrepreneur behind full-service transportation business Custom Companies, which he set up in 1986.
