ABSTRACT
The article discusses the need of use of logistics by urban planners. The logistics networks are fluid and responsive to allow agile companies a market advantage. There's a major disconnect when the users of critical infrastructure sit down with the planners and designers of those resources. The planners start talking about infrastructure projects to meet transportation needs in 2025. Logistics professionals don't have the luxury of looking 20 years ahead -- they need to move freight now. If they're lucky, their planning horizon is 20 months. Logistics is full of regional and local decisions, but very little involvement with planners who will shape the infrastructure on that level.
