In certain branches of transportation, the associated transport costs vary widely. When they are compared, it is necessary to consider all the factors influencing them, and to compare the (same) qualities for different branches of transport. They may be analyzed from 3 different perspectives: 1) from that of the carrier; 2) from that of the transportation service user; and 3) from the perspective of society. With rationalization of production and optimization of location, as well as production activities related to transport, the volume of transport is influenced, in relation to the volume of production, thus influencing also the transportation costs in all branches of transport. Key factors influencing transport costs include duration of transport, distribution of transport among carriers regarding their costs, and price.
