The need for secured shipping operations in sub-Saharan Africa calls for great concern and need for urgent action. Efforts at combating this challenge left decision makers and takers with no option but to wait endlessly for solution one day or resort to the use of intuition in determining issue of such a magnitude. Although, the adapted model TRIPS was originally designed to guarantee protection for materials in transits as well as in storage, but its inherent fall out as benefits supported budget request and incorporation of transportation planning and management in any projects affecting movement of materials (cargoes, trailers etc.) that need protection or thus have security concern.
The paper among other things describe the adaptive use of TRIPS model to aid effective and efficient transportation planning and management and also recommend the need for further research effort geared at enhancing overall development of transportation integrated system (TIS) for better decision making.
