  1. The means of transportation and communication play an important role in the production and movement of goods and services.
  2. Transport helps in the development of various means of communication. Through means of communication, we are able to talk with anyone anywhere. It has brought the world closer.
  3. Transport like railways helps us in business, sightseeing, pilgrimage and transportation of goods over longer distances.
  4. Pipelines are used for transporting crude oil, minerals in slurry form and natural gas to interior refineries and factories.
