A world without transport is one none of us has ever experienced in the 21st century. But why is transportation so important in the modern age?
At John K. Philips, we have been transporting and distributing goods for over 40 years – and we’ve seen first-hand the impact the transportation industry has had on businesses both big and small. Our extensive fleet of trucks work across both the UK and internationally to enable businesses to meet customer needs and thrive in a competitive environment. But without services like ours, where would businesses be today?
Has transport really improved our 21st century?
Well… Yes. The world we live in today would not be possible without the use of transportation and the innovations that have come from it. Mobility, travel and economic activity depend on it.
Without cars, planes, trains and buses we’d struggle to get from place to place in the way we do now. Millions of people depend on transport to go to work, home and to go about their daily business – can you imagine a world without that availability?
Transportation for business
Having transport at any given time has without a doubt increased economic activity. Most industries and businesses require transportation to take and receive goods and raw materials in order to maintain a profit and keep a steady business, therefore an income. A lot of the time with speed. Economic growth depends on the availability of transportation like ours, which allows more trade to go out to a wider spread of consumers, making them able to obtain goods from a range of distances.
Transportation for work
With so many people in the world, transport provides many opportunities for employment – such as train drivers, deliveries, cabin crew, captains, pilots , conductors and people behind the scenes, in traffic control for example. It’s rare a job won’t have any needed transport.
Transportation for connectivity
Transportation is a good way to improve a location. Better access to transport increases a place’s popularity and there forth growth. It’s why so many roads and bridges seem to pop up everywhere you go. This reduces travel costs for businesses and consumers creating an easier way for us to get what we need or go to it.
Transportation for convenience
Due to transport we live in the fast-paced world we do, where we can get pizza at 2am from a guy on a motorbike and run for trains at 8am. We’re able to order late at night for next day delivery from cities miles away, we can track our deliveries from the moment we order them to the moment they arrive at our door.
Thanks to transportation – the possibilities are endless.
