Thesis The paper topic I have chosen to write about is the differences between modes of rail transportation for personnel here in the united states and those in different parts of the world. As I have traveled to different countries most of them being in Europe, I have seen how effectively they use their rail transportation for passengers something that here aside from the big cities like Los Angeles or New York City I am still yet to see. What is the reason that we do not have a rail transport system that can navigate the entire country? Or at least it seems that way to most people. I would also like to research more about the initial rail systems for example who and when they were built. Assignment instructions The research paper should be a minimum of six typed pages and formatted in accordance with APA. Topics should be relevant to intermodal transportation.The nature of a research paper is to prove or disprove a thesis or hypothesis, not simply produce a report or provide information on topic. For example; a topic may be the impact of security on intermodal transportation. The associated thesis could be; actions taken to improve the security at ports has negatively impacted throughput, increasing costs and reducing the quality of operations. The research and body of the paper argues to prove the thesis statement.A draft topic and thesis statement were due to the professor during week 2 (see Week 2 Announcement).
