ABSTRACT
The result of the work conducted by Richard Hawkins in Afghanistan, which aims to assess the domestic road transportation capacity of Afghanistan and its ability to deliver the known and anticipated humanitarian and reconstruction aid that is essential for the well being of millions of its people, as of 2001 are presented in this article. What Richard Hawkins found out was not only a road infrastructure that remains just about viable in spite of the heavy bombing against the Taliban, but also more than enough trucking capacity. The key logistics issues are negotiating shrewdly and effectively on transport contracts, and planning the movements.
