It is important to keep a few points in mind while selecting from the many available modes of transport. If you have to cover a short distance, you are likely to find transporting and moving things by road a lot more convenient and easy and economical. Trucks are by far the most popular means of transport used in countries like India.
If you have to cover a long distance and the two points over which you have to move your goods are near coastal ports, you are to find the seaway quite economical and convenient too. moving goods over oceans involves packing them in containers. These are huge metal room-like cabins with a lot of space. They are usually moved around in ships because of their big sizes.
Transportation by air is one of the most popular means primarily because it is quite quick. The flip side is that it is often quite expensive when it comes to moving around a heavy cargo. In this case, movement by ship is preferred. Air transportation is to undergo a similar procedure of customs and scrutiny as it does in case of sea transportation. Companies involved in moving goods across long distances find the air means of transportation quite good and convenient.
