The transportation sector plays a crucial role in supporting the growth of
the oil palm sector, whereby an efficient transportation system provides
more economic and social opportunities. The relationship between these
two sectors can be examined through their inter-sectoral linkages.
However, the lack of exposition on the role of sectoral linkages of the
transportation sector would disregard the importance of this sector in
the growth of the oil palm sector. This study attempts to analyse the role
of the transportation sector, comprising land, water, and air transport in
the oil palm sector’s growth by studying the inter-industry linkages and
production-inducing effects. The results indicate that the transportation
sector makes a low contribution to the growth of the upstream oil palm
