What Are Transportation Companies?
Transportation companies are entities that transport goods, products, and people, and in our particular field, that involves the movement of a lot of freight. Transportation is crucial to the health of the supply chain by maintaining virtually everything we use in our daily lives.
These companies often own their assets, and operate airlines, cargo ships, freight trains, tractor trailers, or all of the above.
