Question 4

(a) State five factors that will determine the choice of transport by a businessman.
(b) Explain three advantage and two disadvantages of travelling by air.



Factors that determine the choice of transports was fairly attempted. The candidates separated the nature of product into "bulk" and "weight" which are the same thing as the nature of the product. They fail to mention the reputation of the carrier, the unit value of the product and the customers direction as factors to be considered for choice of transportation. For the disadvantages of air transport. Many candidates forgot that the air transport is relatively safe- not subject to frequent accidents, armed robbery attacks etc.
