    Overall, the maximum goods were transported by road.The transportation of good by road was consistent and could see stable increase as compared to others. Transportation of goods over Pipeline mode seems to be less preferred during the given periods.

    In 1974, around 70 million tones of goods were transported by road. There were fluctuations between 1974 to 1982 and later there was steady increase till 2002 and the supply reached close to 100 million tonnes in 2002 by Road.

    Water and railways transported about 40 million tonnes of goods in 1974 and that quantity remained more or less the same over the next four years. There was decline by railways for eight years starting from 1978 whereas the waterways mode showed significant increase. Maximum amount of goods transfer happened in 2002 by Waterway and Rail and the number stands at 60 million and 40 million tonnes respectively.
