      Over here the main problem of SMEs regarding transport is the road culture. Itís not really about the bad driving or the heavy traffic (although it is a big problem) but the issues regarding the truck inspections. It is noticeable that traffic officers are very active at dusk until dawn. They are stopping the trucks like a checkpoint for inspection. If the route of the truck has 10 checkpoints then the delivery may be late by half a day. That is the culture that presents as one of the biggest problems of transport companies for the supply chain industry.
