Research additive manufacturing and discuss how this new technology may someday change the face of transportation with respect of air, rail, motor, water and pipe.

Chapter 12:1. In 1956, Malcolm McLean invented the ISO shipping container that is widely in use today. Describe how “the box” impacted the different modes of transportation (such rail, motor, and water)? Where do you see container technology in (say) 50 years? Is there a possibility of another technology that could disrupt container technology and deem it obsolete?2. With air, rail, motor, water and pipe being the five recognized modes of transportation today, some are arguing that additive manufacturing (3D printing) may someday become the sixth mode of transportation. Research additive manufacturing and discuss how this new technology may someday change the face of transportation with respect of air, rail, motor, water and pipe.Chapter 131. The bill of lading is the single most important transportation documentation. Yet there are two types: straight bill of lading, order bill of lading and three form type: long form bill of lading, short form bill of lading and pre-printed form bill of lading. Briefly explain the purpose of each and how and when each should be used.2.
