Transportation is an activity that realizes the change of the spatial position of people and things, and is closely related to human production and life. Therefore, it can be said that the history of transportation is as old as the history of mankind.
Transportation is the activity of transporting products from the place of production to the place of consumption. Therefore, from the perspective of the entire social production process, transportation is the production process that continues in the circulation field and is completed in it.
Transportation can guarantee the value of the goods. Any product from production to final consumption must go through a period of time. The mission of cargo transportation is to ensure the quality and quantity of the products.
Transportation can save time. From road transport to aircraft transport, transportation takes less and less time.
Transportation can shorten the distance. Fresh fruit from all over the world can be bought in Beijing. With the continuous advancement of the modernization of cargo transportation, the international transportation capacity has been greatly enhanced.
Transportation can protect the environment. The government attaches great importance to the transportation of goods and vigorously builds urban roads and stations. The traffic congestion in the city will be alleviated and the air quality will naturally improve.
FUTURE PROSPECTS FOR TRANSPORTATION
People are enjoying the speed and convenience brought by "speeding up". Many people have not thought that it is not a simple matter to carry out "speeding up". Whether it is hardware facilities or technical level, this has high requirements. To meet these requirements, we cannot do without the support of the transportation profession. Transportation is an indispensable part of human society's production, economy and life. With the development of society and technology, people's demand for transportation has grown rapidly, thus forming a modern transportation industry.
Today's transportation has evolved into a multi-modal integrated transportation era with the transformation of transportation. The five main modes of transportation are road transport, rail transport, water transport, air transport and pipeline transport. Students who graduate in transportation can work in these transportation sectors and in related fields. After graduation, students majoring in transportation are mainly engaged in management and organization related to transportation.
Transportation is also the basic condition for connecting the east and west markets of China Unicom and improving the economic benefits of the region.
There are many colleges and universities in China open for transportation major study , such as Beijing Jiaotong University, Civil Aviation University of China, Dalian Maritime University, Central South University, Southwest Jiaotong University, Chang'an University, and Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
