Transportation

 

Transportation is the movement of persons and goods from one place to the other.

 

People move from one place to the other in search of food, clothing and shelter.

 

They also move for love of adventure. During the olden days, transportation was easy. At that time, human societies were small. People did not travel far. People carried out their transportation by walking to places.

 

They also used animals as means of transportation. They rode on horses and chariots.

 

They used camels and donkeys to carry heavy loads. People that lived in riverine areas used wooden boats and canoes for their transportation. As human societies became larger, more advanced means of transportation were invented.

 

There was the invention of bicycles, cars, lorries, trains and buses. Some of these means of transportation, especially bicycles and chariots, do not use complex engines. Others like motorcycles, lorries, buses and trains use complex engines, special fluids and fuel to work. They can also carry heavy goods.

 

They can travel far distances within a short time. In the modern days, people travel by sea using ships. There are also large ferries and cranes that are used to transport heavy goods on water. People also travel by air using different types of aircrafts. Scientist and astronauts travel into the moon by means of the rocket.
