This study attempts to identify and extract risk factors faced by Landlocked Developing Countries (LLDCs) in accessing to seaport in Transit Countries (TCs) for cargo haulage. It is widely said that counties enclosed by land without direct access to seaport are facing several challenges in high transport cost which makes economic growth of LLDCs decline. Since TCs are out of LLDCs' jurisdiction, LLDCs has no right on decision making for infrastructure planning in TCs and therefore will face several risks. Unfortunately, risks arise on the haulage is commonly recognized as quite tough task to be identified properly. In this study, we attempts to develop a prompt list which is one of the useful risk identification tools for freight transport of LLDCs for their logistics activities on the route between LLDCs and seaport in TCs.
