Road transport, also known as trucking or transportation by road, involves the movement of goods and individuals from one location to another using road networks. Roads serve as routes between destinations, providing a path for motorized and non-motorized vehicles to facilitate transportation.

Road transport offers several advantages when compared to other modes of transport. One significant advantage is the relatively low investment required. Establishing and maintaining road infrastructure is generally less costly than building and maintaining railways or airports for air transport. This makes road transport a more accessible and economical option, particularly for smaller businesses or regions with limited resources.
