Resource description

Globalization has forced impressive growth rates in international trade within the last decades and although food trade hasn't been able to keep pace with this general development it is one of the most economic-political sensitive areas in international negotiations. Furthermore transportation of food is characterized mainly by perishability and challenges transport logistics especially when crossing boarders or even regions. Therefore the main aim of this paper is to provide a detailed overview of present boardercrossing food transportation by analysing food trade in value and quantities as well as to identify development tendencies between 1990 and 2005. Furthermore to explain the observed developments determinants of changes will be analysed and a final discussion of the key issues in transporting food at a global dimension will round the paper.
