Transport / Transportation / Shipping
Spanish term or phrase: problemas de comunicación (in this context)
...se consideró los problemas de comunicación que genera la lejanía a la ciudad (8 horas en botes comerciales).

This is not "communication" in the sense of "transferring information" but rather to do with how easy it is to get from one place to another. In the past, I've translated "bien comunicado" as "well-connected", but I don't know how to word it in this sentence.

Any ideas?
