Transportation is classified into two levels: one is the primary level wherein it covers movement to that point in the chain from where the product can be sold to outside parties. The secondary level is the transportation which many a times is picked up by the seller. Road, rail air and ship are primary levels of transport used while the secondary level of transport includes small truck booking. Railways meanwhile cater to the bulk commodity traffic. Transportation in different forms has distinct benefits. Air transport helps in bringing new distant market within reach. Sea cargo provides economic option for international transportation and pipeline is the ideal mode of transporting large quantities of liquid, gases or slurry types of cargos of long distances. Inland waterways are a mode of transport in the eastern parts of the country as well as Kerala. However, they need to be substantially developed. Products can be moved in difficult to navigate terrain such as hills for example through ropeways.
