ContainerCast, hosted by Mat Kaplan, is a podcast exploring important issues in goods movement and international trade.
The latest episode, recorded in April 2017, is entitled 'METRANS: A Family of Centers.'
METRANS is the nearly twenty-year-old partnership between California State University, Long Beach and the University of Southern California. This unique collaboration began as the first, federally-funded, University Transportation Center in Southern California. Relying on the individual strengths of each campus, and working in conjunction with other institutions, METRANS has steadily grown into the hub for a remarkable collection of publically and privately-supported transportation research efforts. CITT Executive Director Tom O’Brien describes the fascinating range of work underway, and how it benefits industry, society and students.
