- Meaning and Definition of Transport
Read the following passage and answer the question given below
Transport is the movement of a person or thing from one place to another. So the transfer of thoughts or ideas is communication. The distribution of resources is not the same everywhere so where there is a shortage of resources. They are transported to such places. Raw materials are processed in factories and finished goods are transported to markets by means of transportation.
From time immemorial, human beings have been using the means of transportation to transport goods. In the early days, humans used to carry loads to their destination for long periods of time as a means of transportation. From the earliest times load-bearing humans to animals and later handcarts to modern vehicles, the order of evolution evolved.
Even today, animals are widely used for transportation in rural, mountainous, desert or snow-covered areas. The traditional system of transportation has been revolutionized by the invention of powerful engines and vehicles. Modern vehicles have increased not only the speed of transportation but also the carrying capacity. People are more in touch with each other because of the faster transportation system.
