Abstract

Abstract:

The achievement of seamless cargo operations at airports appears difficult because of the myriad of factors serving as constraints to the operational efficiency of cargo flow. The rates at which these constraints persist weaken the systematic supply chain of cargo operations at airports. This paper examines the level of the interrelation ships the factors serving as constraints to the efficient operations for air cargo distribution at Accra airport, Ghana. The study employed random sampling technique to survey a total of 154 respondents who were majorly cargo agents and customs officers at Accra airport, Ghana. The result of the Speraman’s Rank correlation analysis of data showed that majority of the variables have significant relationships at p = 0.01 and p = 0.05 with one another to serve as constraints to operational efficiency of air cargo distribution in Ghana. This implies that inefficient cargo operations subsist as a result of the intertwine nature of these factors. The study concludes with policy recommendation on the need to promote efficient cargo operations in Ghana with reduced effect of the joint and individual factor on airport operations.
