Transportation is the movement of people, cattle, animals and goods from one location to another. Modes of transport include air, rail, road, water, cable, pipeline, and space. The field can be divided into infrastructure, vehicles, and operations. Transport is important since it enables trade between peoples, which in turn establishes civilizations. — Wikipedia

History

Transportation, Communication and Commerce have also been inextricably intertwined since the beginning of human history, and they still remain closely related today.

The success of the first electronic telegraph line in 1844 opened an era of modern communication in America. Before the telegraph there existed no separation between transportation and communication. Information traveled only as fast as the messenger who carried it. — D. J. Czitrom, Media and the American Mind: From Morse to Mcluhan

This reality was even codified in the Dewey Decimal library classification system:
380 Commerce, communications, transportation
