TRANSPORT COMPANIES

BASIC MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION

Transportation is divided into modes based on the type of transportation used—waterborne, rail, road-based, air, and pipeline. In turn “single-mode” and “multiple-mode” materials movements are recorded, the latter type sometimes referred to as “intermodal transport.” This mixed mode of transport involves two or more modes to make a shipment. An example is oil transport to a port facility by tanker followed by pipeline transport of the crude to a refinery. In the Age of Information, as we like to call our times, we also transport data using wire or wireless methods; but while “data deliveries” are essentially equivalent in some businesses to “shipments,” as yet data transfer is not routinely considered to be transportation.

Water, rail, and truck transportation modes are each capable of transporting anything moving in commerce physically, but these modes have different levels of access to customers, different speeds, and thus carry different types of cargo. Barges very rarely carry packaged-good shipments and trucks almost never move bulk commodities except over very short distances. Air transport is limited in transporting very bulky and very heavy objects, but air transport is ideal for light packages and for items that must be transported rapidly; pipelines move liquids and gases or other substances that behave in an analogous way but cannot be used in other applications.
