Domestic Transport refers to the movement of goods within the borders of a single country, using various modes of transportation such as road, rail, air, and water. It is an essential part of the supply chain, connecting manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers to distribute products to consumers across the country. Domestic transport services are critical for maintaining the flow of goods and ensuring timely delivery, whether for business-to-business (B2B) or business-to-consu mer (B2C) transactions.

Example or usage in road freight logistics:
A manufacturer of electronics in California needs to distribute its products to retailers across the United States. To ensure timely and cost-effective delivery, the company uses a mix of domestic transport modes. For short distances and flexible delivery schedules, the company relies on road freight services using a fleet of trucks. For long-distance shipments to the East Coast, the manufacturer utilizes rail transport to move large volumes of cargo more cost-effectively. In cases where urgent or time-sensitive deliveries are required, the company opts for airfreight services to expedite the shipment.
