Cargo transport is considered to be a set of basic logistic activities and consists in creating the place and time utilities. In fact, the client doesn’t only use the simple space movement of goods, but also buys a set of activities to which participates a series of components: the primary participants (the caterers), the transporters, the government (through legal regulations imposed in this field) and the public, through its needs and requests.
The importance of transport is realized in two ways, namely: at macro and micro-economic level. The factors which influence the later are: the utility of place, time, shape, the impact on competitiveness, the contribution to costs and prices, the leverage effect on the profit, the impact on the logistic activities and the influence on other sides of the company’s activities. The most important is the price, given that this is an important factor for the transporter’s selection. This is the reason for which we consider the economy of scale, which implies the growth of transported quantities in order to reduce both transport costs on product unit and distance economy which implies price decreases proportionally with the increase of the transport distance.
As well, in what the macro-economic factors, which determine the importance of the cargo transport activity, are concerned, these depend on the possibility of the geographical specialization, on the large scale production, the increase of competition and the country’s economic development.
