What is Transportation Mode?

Transportation mode in shipping refers to the method used to move goods from one location to another. Examples include air, ocean, rail, road, and intermodal. 


When selecting the best transportation mode, businesses should consider a variety of factors such as cost, transit time, reliability, and environmental impact. Additionally, businesses should evaluate their own needs and determine which mode best meets their requirements. For example, if speed is of the essence, air transport may be the preferred choice.
