To ensure that a country is mobile enough to cater for all its operations, it should ensure that its infrastructure in regard to transportation is better enough. The problem with ensuring that there is a good transport infrastructure is that resources that are needed are limited and that is why the question of how much transport should be put in place and to maintain it arises. What is the need of the transport system? This is good question which helps in determining the transport capacity which a country is supposed to set up. First the nation should ensure that it has provided necessary capital and other services to ensure that mass transportation system such as rail, ports and roods have been developed and put into operations, (Boyer, 2004).
A nations’ transport system should be effective such that it caters for all needs of the citizens and also the nations operations with other countries either for export and imports. Reliability and safety is the one of the major concern which the nation should look when putting up a transport system. An efficient transport system helps the nation’s transport activities move accordingly thus enabling the economy of the country to grow abundantly. A nation’s transport capacity should be the one which caters for a nation’s development so it should ensure that it has taken consideration to things such as employment, economy and environment just to mention but a few, (Boyer, 2004).
Security should be taken into consideration when designing a nations’ transport system. A good transport system helps the nation have latest information and thus help it to improve its operating systems of the organization. Employment is enhanced because with a good transport system a lot of activities take place thus creating employment. There should be some policies and strategies set in order to ensure that the system which have been put in place applies effectively, (Small, 2002).
