The general project purpose was to develop a methodology of how rural transport services for high value agricultural goods can be planned and implemented with due concern for household livelihood systems. This methodology used a logistics approach that exploits among others, a multi-modal planning approach (linking IMTs to motorised transport), ICTs, and route schedule management that is synchronised to load thresholds at different times. The outcomes shall be generalised for use in varying geographical and economic environments for varying enterprises with options for use by investors, policy makers and donors.
