Transport control in its broadest sense, is the central task of present-day traffic management. It is concerned not alone with the price paid to or the service rendered by one or several carriers but also with the entire group of transportation costs and of service aspects that, taken as a whole, move the inbound or outbound product from some origin to a chosen destination. Handling methods, time in transit, packaging costs, disposal of unpackaging debris, warehouse or storagepile costs, cost of intra-plant movement and the avoidance of wastage or damage, all are part of this transport control task.
