Abstract
A modern writer on the economics of transport has said: "The object of transport is to increase wealth and welfare. This it secures in many direct and indirect ways, of which the chief is that of moving goods and services from points where, being in comparatively little demand, they have low value, to other points where. through being in greater demand, they acquire higher value; it being the test of good management to absorb as little as possible of the increased wealth in the process of achieving it. Thus transport promotes that specialization of function upon which material civilization depends, by making possible an interchange of the products of diverse activities, each separately carried on in the place and circumstances most advantageous to it."l
