The WFP’s transport of food aid to Ethiopia’s landlocked population is constrained by transshipment processing bottlenecks at the port, and limited availability of trucks for inland transport. We analyzed the quantitative and qualitative factors used in selecting routes and mitigating port bottleneck issues. Our results will be used by the WFP and other humanitarian organizations which aid distressed populations.
