Hendrickson Interviewed by NPR


CEE Professor Chris Hendrickson was interviewed in a story for All Things Considered on NPR (National Public Radio) on June 24, 2008. The story, 'Freight Trains Thrive Despite High Fuel Prices', describes the railroad industry's marketing campaign proving their advantage of greater fuel efficiency (as opposed to long haul trucks) to haul more goods across the country. Prof. Hendrickson stated that rail fuel efficiency is about 10 times more than that of trucks. You can hear the story by visiting NPR's website.
