The transport lexicon
Goods transport is understood as the carriage of cargo or goods of all types with means of transport such as truck, car, train, ship or aircraft. Local and long-distance traffic are distinguished. Local traffic is understood as the transport of goods if the shipper and recipient are geographically close, so the truck can return again to its starting point every day. In long-distance traffic, on the other hand, the cargo is transported over long distances.
