INTRODUCTION

  • Background of the study

Transportation represents one of the most important human activities worldwide. Transportation is defined according to Oni (2009), as the conveyance of goods and people over land, across water, and through the air from one location to another.  Ighodalo (2009) observed that several modes of transportation exist for both man and goods; and that these modes, can be grouped into four basic categories, namely: rail, road, water and air. Water transport is associated with inland waterways, coastal waters and the deep sea (Ismaila, 2008).  Inland waterways are navigable water bodies which include:  rivers, lakes, coastal  creeks,  lagoons  and canals,  found  within  the  geographical  dimensions  of  a state (Aderemo and Mogaji, 2010). The movement of goods and services along inland waterways is one of the oldest means of transporting goods and services from point to point (Fellinda, 2006).  This  is  largely  due to  the  fact that  inland  water transport  (IWT)  offers the  most economical, energy efficient  and environmental friendly means of transporting all types of cargo from place to place (Ojile, 2006). In most cities, urban freight transport is almost exclusively performed by road. Railways and waterways are seldom used for carrying goods in urban areas Several authors (e.g. ) acknowledge the potential of shifting a part of Inter-urban flows towards the waterway network. In fact, inland waterways are the only land infrastructure with free capacity and are therefore not subject to congestion problems. Inland navigation is the most energy and carbon-efficient mode as a ship uses 1 to 2 times less fuel than a train and 3 to 5 times less fuel than a truck and can be economically competitive. In Europe, inland navigation is already commonly used for the transportation of bulk materials over longer distances and consequently to supply port-cities in those products. Logistics can be considered as a tool for getting the products and services where they are needed and when they are desired. It is difficult to accomplish any marketing or manufacturing without logistical support. It involves the integration of information, transportation, inventory, warehousing, material handling, and packaging. The operating responsibility of logistics is the geographical repositioning of raw materials, work in process, and finished inventories where required at the lowest cost possible. To varying degrees, the logistics function also includes sourcing and procurement, production planning and scheduling, packaging and assembly, and customer service.  It is involved in all levels of planning and execution: strategic, tactical and operational. Logistics management is an integrating function which coordinates and optimizes all logistics activities, as well as integrates logistics activities with other functions, including marketing, sales, manufacturing, finance, and information technology. Quite a few studies have reviewed intermodal opportunities for city logistics and even fewer have focused on initiatives using the inland waterway Network. Nemoto et al builds a general research framework for intermodal transport in the context of city logistics and provides few examples of implementation of city logistics solutions using waterborne transport. Apart from the fact that It is a sustainable and the most environmentally friendly mode in terms of energy consumption, noise and gas emission and  also  that  it  remains  the  oldest  means  of  transporting persons and goods from point to point (Fellinda, 2006), it has the  ability to  tackle  traffic congestions  challenges in  Lagos Metropolis when used as a complement mode to road. Lagos roads and its furniture are saturated and over stretched with the responsibility of moving millions of residents daily. Water travel is a realistic and potentially effective option given that Lagos state is blessed with abundant water bodies that could be harnessed to offer fast, safe, comfortable and cheap water transportation service.

1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The enormous coastal trade opportunities it present for indigenous shipping companies in Nigeria overtime failed due to shipping policy in place over the years, directed on such trade. Several policies initiatives are currently directed on the operation and the management at the inland waterways such as the coastal and inland shipping (cabotage) Act passed 2003. However, it is not enough a thing to initiate policies whereas the management administration or rather the expected enforcement pattern of such policies is not inputted. This really affects on logistics especially those in Lagos state.

  • OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY

The objectives of the study are;

  1. To evaluate the extent of Government commitment to the development of inland water transport in Nigeria
  2. To ascertain the relationship between the inland transportation and effect on logistics
  3. To ascertain the effect of inland transportation on Nigeria economy
Thanks to Plentywaka, shipping in Lagos is “safe and seamless"

RESEARCH HYPOTHESES

The following have been put forward for testing

H0: there is no relationship between the inland transportation and effect on logistics

H1: there is relationship between the inland transportation and effect on logistics

H0: there is no effect of inland transportation on Nigeria economy

H1: there is effect of inland transportation on Nigeria economy

  • SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF THE STUDY

The scope of the study covers an evaluation of the inland transportation and its effect on logistic in Nigeria. The result of this work shall be of immense assistance to each to these user groups in the advancement of their interest. The researcher encounters some constrain which limited the scope of the study;

  1. a) AVAILABILITY OF RESEARCH MATERIAL: The research material available to the researcher is insufficient, thereby limiting the study
  2. b) TIME: The time frame allocated to the study does not enhance wider coverage as the researcher has to combine other academic activities and examinations with the study.
  3. c) Organizational privacy: Limited Access to the selected auditing firm makes it difficult to get all the necessary and required information concerning the activities.
