External Environment Industry Analysis The goal of the industry analysis is to recognize the external environmental factors which have potential impact on the industry. The first part gives an idea about the airline industry profile. Airline industry, in the last decade, has been growing strongly at 7% per year for both through tourism and businesses divisions and is one of the most competitive, globally, contributing to economic growth, trade, investment and tourism.

They set this new target after achieving a 41.5 percent reduction of waste being sent to the landfills from 2005 to 2009 far exceeds the original 20 percent reduction goal. In addition to facility-based efforts, they continually work to improve the energy efficiency of methods for transporting supplies to facilities and foods to market. In the U.S., the Kellogg-operated truck fleet and 97 percent of contracted truck fleet are enrolled in the SmartWay program initiated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. SmartWay is a partnership among government, business and consumers to help improve air quality and reduce fuel use. Around the globe, fresh water resources are under pressure from climate change, population growth, industrial and agricultural uses, and aging or inefficient infrastructure.
Housing represents one of the most basic human needs. To most groups housing means shelter but to others it means more as it serves as one of the best indicators of a person’s standard and it is important to both rural and urban areas. These attributes make demand for housing to know no bound as population growth and urbanization increase rapidly and the gap between housing need and supply becomes widen. This housing deficit has continued to accumulate over the years in Nigeria. In Nigeria, housing deficit as at 2007 stood at between 12 million to 14 million units (Akeju, 2007) by 2008, had risen to 18 million units (Onwuemenyi, 2008).

Movement of cargo in Ghana is made possible by variety of means of transport as mentioned in the introduction. This research focuses exclusively on the feeder operation in Ghana. As this research assesses the role of feeder operation in Ghana, some important questions may be generated. Since the establishment of feeder service in Ghana, there has been a challenge in cargo imbalance to and from the Tema and Takoradi ports which threatens maintaining its future sustainability. Also, there has been an increase in the deterioration of roads due to constant usage of it by heavy trucks.
Following international trends, the automobile industry in Pakistan showed substantial growth in the years under review. A significant rise in demand for automobiles, propelled at least partly by easy availability of auto leases and loans from banks and leasing companies at low financial cost, was instrumental in the fast growth of the sector. In the past years, there has been a high growth of more than 40 percent per year in the automobile market. The growth in the automobile sector had naturally also given impetus to the allied automobile vendor industry, which also faced problems due to the recent fall in demand. The auto-makers need to take this crucial fact into account that there is still a significant gap between supply and demand for
Also, motorization and the spread of personal mobility is an ongoing trend linked with substantial declines in the share of public transit in urban movements. (Rodrigue et al., 2013). Brief history of the development of public transport in Ghana In Ghana, the modern public transportation system dates as far back as 1898 when the first rail line was constructed from Takoradi to Tarkwa for the commercial exploitation of gold, and the first road created between Accra Harbour (now Jamestown) and Dodowa to Larteh in 1905 for the export of palm fruits (Wilson, 2006). Another rail line was built linking Tarkwa with Prestea between 1908 and 1911 but these lines were built mainly in response to the demands from the mining sector at the time (Addo, 2006). The informal sector has also operated and continues to operate transport services alongside the formal sector.
Transportation can be in different ways and means, but road transport is directly affect to the growth of a country. The real value added value of land transport service activities, have grown by 4.5 percent in year 2016.According to (Leshem et al, 2007), road transportation is a critical link between all the other modes of transportation and their proper functioning. It is the lifeblood of industrialized economies. Unfortunately, the existing road network, including the motorway system, is becoming explosively congested due to increase in the number of vehicles and inability to build new and larger motorways (David
