The research is equally targeted at discovering the solutions of distribution of goods and services throughout transportation mean. This research is also aim at proffering recommendations as to the possible mean by which the problem of transportation and distribution of goods and service can be eliminated as a tool for distribution growth. This research also helps to improve the predictive power in business by offering relevant solution to the problems of transportation and distribution of goods and services in Aguata local government area. Three research questions were formulated to guide the researcher. The design of the study is a survey design; this necessitated the information of research question and questionnaires. Questionnaire was used as the instrument for data collection. The findings includes: it is observed that the research work of this project that despite the construction of different forms of transportation system to cover this project primitive system of transport and enhance distribution system the aims were defeated. This is because some areas in Aguata local government area are still lacking forms of transportation and consequently the goods process by them are not able to distributed to the areas where they are needed. The local government has not been able to bring out sufficient or more transit to aid in the distribution of goods, both in rural and urban area. In this case, efficient and effective distribution is lacking the local government area, because the aim have not been achieved for instance there have been road problem which contributed to the distribution of goods at the time it is needed it also caused the spoilage of perishable goods it has been found out also that management neglects their functions they do not discharge their duty effectively and providently this constitutes one of the impending factor in the distribution of goods in both the urban periphery. It was concluded that to maintain continuity and profit by the company drivers especially in Aguata local government area, risk bearing and corporate planning strategies should be a factors which ought not to be disregarded. Also private and public transport should in providing their vehicle to firms that need their help for delivering of goods at a reduced price, therefore we conclude that goods and effective transport system should be enforced in the light of the findings and conclusion it was recommended that for this obvious reason, effort have to be made by the individual in the production sector of the local government and those who are in the other sectors should realize that by having adequate transportations facilities to rural areas the availability of local food stuff will be increased in area with the population this should be done by providing more buses for the local government offer prompt delivery of goods besides that repair and grading the roads that leads to those hinter lands will be of great to the distribution of goods in effects, it will reduce the price of goods as have seen in the work, that due to inaccessibility of some areas, price of goods available in those are inflated because there is no means of getting in more goods.
