A successful project in Malawi designed to provide a viable method of short‐haul transport, in rural areas with poor infrastructure, for agricultural produce is described. The tractor plus two trailers unit that was developed was not only efficient but cost effective compared to other systems. It was also assembled and therefore could be maintained by skilled workers locally. The problems of raising capital for projects of this kind are discussed.
