Distribution locally is challenged by poor road conditions and difficult terrain especially in the rural areas. Spoilage of perishable goods is very costly and therefore types of transportation used must be equipped to carry perishable goods.
Problems encountered in Overseas Transportation
The challenges faced in transporting goods internationally will impact foreign exchange earnings. These challenges include:
-misdirection of goods – goods mistakenly sent to the wrong destination
-strikes by airport and ship port workers.
-narcotics found in containers
-pilferage- goods stolen in transit.
Measures to mitigate problems of distribution
-careful checks before loading packages for shipment
-contingency plan when strikes occur
-public awareness on the consequences of narcotics found in containers
-making persons responsible for any goods lost in their care
