Infrastructure Risk

The risk of loss due to the possibility that the infrastructure in an area may be insufficient to complete a project or transport a good. For example, there may be no highways or major roads in an area, which will make it difficult or impossible to transport goods to the area in a timely manner. This may result in a loss to the seller. Infrastructure risk is higher in developing countries or in remote areas of developed countries. It is also called transportation risk.
