Journal of Geography and Earth Science, 1(1), 09-18.

The need to sustain the growth and development of human settlement and their economies, among user things, makes it partly imperative for the transport sector to be very responsive to different forces that affect transport planning, operations and management. Among these forces are the ownership and control structure of transport infrastructure and services, level of investment in various transport modes (air, maritime, rail, inland water and road), degree of inter-modal coordination, rate of response to transport technological changes, especially in respect of international transport, extent of obsolescence or modernization of the transport system, ability to adapt to changing transport supply – demand pattern and the state of the economy.
