IS DUAL MODE TRANSPORTATION IN YOUR FUTURE?
The idea of dual mode transport has been around for some time, but now especially in China the concept is starting to take hold. But what is “dual mode transport”? Basically the concept is that you have a vehicle such as a car or wagon to get you almost where you’re going and then you unload a smaller vehicle to get you the rest of the way.
Here in the United States this would probably be seen as a luxury, but in China where traffic congestion is becoming a major problem this can be a viable solution. Most of the major auto makers are keeping a close eye on how the Chinese auto market will react to some of the new dual mode transport models soon to be offered.
Although traffic congestion in the U.S. is nowhere near that of China, dual mode transportation is being seen as a possible way of dealing with an ever aging population which will still need to get from point A to point B.
