The Impact Logistics Management on Food Security

Abstract The assurance that food insecurity is minimized with enabling logistics provisions is evident in the literature, however, the quantified relation between logistics management and food security was limited. This article examines the relationship between logistics management and food security, focusing on the efficacy of the Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Program (IPEP) warehouses in coordinating Logistics in the agricultural sector. Using a multi-stage sampling technique, 384 smallholder farmers from two regions having access to the IPEP initiative were sampled, in the aftermath, regression analysis was performed. Contrary to the GSS, 2022 Annual Household Income and Expenditure Survey, which claims around 50 percent food insecurity, Ghana's food security has improved, with over 90 percent of foods produced now escaping post-harvest losses.
However, Logistics management has a weak relationship with Ghana's food security at p=0.073 and Pearson's R=0.149, indicating that Logistics management has a slight influence (p=0.001) on food security (R2 =1%), and recent improvements in food security cannot be linked to its well-roundedness. Ninety-nine percent of the underlying food security cannot be correlated to effective logistics management; therefore, effective implementation of a national plan is essential to institute the IPEP as the fulcrum in carrying out this administrative responsibility for the optimum gain.
