4.Why is transportation a key requirement to a logistics or supply chain managementrequirements? 5. How do containers reduce material handling time and costs? Please describe how containers can be used in multimodal or Intermodal. By shipping more at one time in a container you save in costs as it is more expensive to ship multiple little shipments that would equal the amount shipped in the container. Containers also eliminate the cost of the individual packing for shipment. By grouping things in a container time is saved by being able to move one large thing instead of multiple smaller packages.
