Movement of goods and passengers from one place to another is called transport. Earlier, humans used to carry their own goods, but soon he learnt to domesticate animals and use them as the beasts of burden. However, now transport is overwhelmingly mechanical.

Transport routes or channels are the basic arteries of our economy. They provide important links between producers and consumers of goods.

In a greatly diversified economic, social and cultural life, the well-knit transport system brings people very close to one another, promoting interdependence among them.

Covering three media – land, water and air - there are five types of transport systems in India: roadways, railways, pipelines, waterways and airways. In those areas where these means are not available, goods are carried by animals even today, and sometimes, by the humans themselves.
