Transport routes are traffic routes or conveying routes on which goods, people or data are transported . A distinction is made between land, water and air transport routes that are used for the different types of transport .
- Railway lines : on them railways operate rail traffic )
- Roads (e.g. trade routes ): road vehicles run on them and transport (private or commercial) people, their own goods or the goods of third parties (see also passenger transport , goods transport , works transport )
State, commercial or private air traffic is generally considered to be the air transport route . But space travel is also increasingly used to transport satellites into space; where usually most of the way there is no conventional air away.
Data transport routes
Cables of various types (glass fiber, copper, etc.), but also shared media (power cables, air) are used as data transport routes. Certain data transport routes exist only temporarily, i.e. H. during data transmission and may not be tied to a medium , see radio transmission , electromagnetic wave and sound wave .
