Marine Transportation Errors to Support the Flow of Goods and People


This study aims to determine the role of marine transportation in supporting the flow of goods and people in Maligano District, Muna Regency. Seven informants were used in this study, consisting of: the Maligano sub-district head (key informant); two traders; two farmers; and two boat owners. Data analysis involved the descriptive analysis method. The results led the researchers to conclude that the construction of the port and the procurement of KM Rembulan and speed boats played a role in increasing the number of traders and other individuals involved in economic activities around the port, resulting in increased community income, higher flows of goods and people, and an increase in the quantity and type of goods transported via the Maligano-Raha route.
