Why road transport is preferred.
- Its cheaper and faster for short distances
- All areas including remote areas can be accessed road.
- Suitable for delivering perishable goods like vegetables
- Handling is minimal hence cuts down breakage and pilferage
- Its flexible hence goods may be sold on route.
- Insurance charges are lower compared to sea transport
- Convenient since vehicles need not run on scheduled time like with rail transport.
