Transport and Distribution & European transport News, Videos and Product Reviews

Transport and Distribution are key considerations when planning for the movement of goods, people or animals from one location to another. Choosing the right mode of transport is essential to ensure your consignment is moved in the most efficient and cost-effective way. There are four ways of freight forwarding- road, rail, air and sea. Freight or goods may be moved using some or a combination of all of these modes of transport. The type of transportation is determined by factors such as distance, location, size and weight of cargo and the type of infrastructure available such as roads, railways, airways, waterways, canals, airports, railway stations.
