Abstract: In recent years, many foreign firms have flocked to China (People's Republic of China) to take advantage of the opportunities in the large market. However, some of these firms have faced logistical problems in transporting and distributing their goods in China. Identifies the transportation problems faced by foreign firms operating in China and examines the possible actions and factors for minimizing such problems. The objectives of this study are achieved through a survey of Singapore-based manufacturing firms that have operations in China. The survey results show that some transportation problems were more serious than others. The type of transport mode and ownership of the transport services used can affect the degree of satisfaction for the transportation of goods in China. Also identifies the actions taken by the firms that were most effective in alleviating the transportation problems. The government can play an important role in improving the logistical environment. © MCB University Press.
