Abstract

The aim of this paper was to measure the level of technical efficiency and identify the determinants of this efficiency in the transport-manufacturing firms in Malaysia. The analysis involves two stages. The first stage is applying Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to calculate technical efficiency scores using agregate data for the period of 2005-2010 provided by the Department of Statistics, Malaysia. This score is then used as the dependent variable in the second stage to identify technical efficiency determinants using Tobit regression. In this model, the dependent variables are capital-labor ratio, expenditure on training, ratio of workers by educational level, wage rate, expenditure on information technology and communication (ICT) and firm size. The results showed that the levels of technical efficiencies are quite high for all subindustry. Wage and firm size have positive and significant on technical efficiency. The implication from these results is that the transport-manufacturing firms need to increase their investments in human capital, motivate workers and reduce capital usage to suit the level of technology and skilled workers.
