Impact of Integrated Transport System (Its) on the Productivity of Smes in Selected South-Western States of Nigeria.



This paper examines the impact of Integrated Transport System on the productivity of SMEs in selected states of South-Western Nigeria. The sample frame consisted of SMEs that registered with the Chambers of Commerce and Industries of the selected states and are located within the state capital of the study area. Stratified sampling technique supplemented by cluster sampling was adopted. Data were elicited with the aid of structured questionnaire administered on 460 registered SMEs out of which 424 were found analysable.

The study revealed that there is a strong (P= 0.864) inverse relationship between SMEs’ productivity and Government Policy (GP) on Integrated Transport System that is, slow responsiveness to Integrated Transport System by Nigeria Government. Based on the findings of this research, it was concluded that Nigeria Government’s responsiveness is slow and having provided the efficacy of ITS in aiding SMEs’ effectiveness in developing countries, the time is ripe for it accelerated adoption and implementation not only with SMEs but with other sectors of the economy.
