Importance of Transportation

A world without transport is one none of us has ever experienced in the 21st century. But why is transportation so important in the modern age?

Could you imagine a life without transportation? Although an easier picture to conjure up for older generations, most of us won’t recall a time where transport wasn’t at the heart of every day life. It’s true that the importance of transportation can easily be overlooked, but without it – the life we live today would be entirely different.

At John K. Philips, we have been transporting and distributing goods for over 40 years – and we’ve seen first-hand the positive impact the transportation industry has had on businesses both big and small. Our extensive fleet of trucks work across both the UK and internationally to enable businesses to meet customer needs and thrive in a competitive environment. But without services like ours, where would businesses be today?

Importance of Transportation


Well…yes. The world we live in today would not be possible without the use of transportation and the innovations that have come from it. Mobility, travel and economic activity depend on it.

Without cars, planes, trains and buses, we’d struggle to get from place to place with the ease we do now. Millions of people depend on transport to go to work, home and to go about their daily business – can you imagine a world without that availability?


Having constant access to transport has, without a doubt, increased economic activity. Most industries and businesses require fast and efficient transportation to deliver and receive goods and raw materials in order to maintain steady business and generate a profit. Economic growth depends on the availability of reliable transportation – like ours – which allows trade to reach out to a wider spread of consumers.

Take, for example, our pallet delivery service. Businesses up and down the country rely on us to safely deliver goods, as trusted pallet couriers. Convinced on the importance of transportation yet?

Without this one service, businesses of all sizes wouldn’t be able to achieve the efficient and safe shipping and distribution of goods that they can now.


Transport provides many opportunities for employment – such as train drivers, deliveries, cabin crew, captains, pilots, conductors and people behind the scenes, in traffic control for example. Whether your job is in transportation itself, or you rely on it to get yourself to work – transportation runs through the heart of most people’s everyday working life.


If you’re searching for new work premises, we’ll bet one of the first things you look for is good access to transport links. Better access to transport increases a place’s popularity and therefore growth. It’s why so many roads and bridges seem to pop up everywhere you go. This reduces travel costs for businesses and consumers creating an easier way for us to get what we need – or go to it. Let’s face it, these days we live in a world that is more connected than ever before, and we expect anything we purchase to be with us right away. That Amazon Prime next day delivery is orchestrated by transportation up and down the country, and all over the world!

why is transportation important


Without transport, we wouldn’t be able to live in the fast-paced world we do. Where we can get pizza delivered by a guy on a motorbike at 2am and run for the 8am train. We’re also able to order late at night for next day delivery from cities miles away and keep track of our deliveries from the moment we order, to the moment they arrive at our door.

Thanks to transportation, the possibilities are endless.


Imagine if it took you hours to get to your local social club, one of your only opportunities to interact with people throughout the week? Or if your friends or family live a long distance away and you could never see them due to a lack of transport? Transport allows you to keep in touch with loved ones, which could be especially important if encountering a down period. These are things we take for granted, but transport really does save lives!


If you’re a business owner, you might question whether you are getting the most out of the transportation available. Do you benefit from distribution on a grand scale? Can your customers track their deliveries? If not – then perhaps you should consider contacting us at John K. Philips.

We offer a range of transportation services that can take your business operations to the next level. Here are just some of our most popular services:


At John K Philips, we’re experts in pallet delivery and palletised freight, meaning that we can help businesses to deliver goods to their customers safely, securely and on time. For you, that means peace of mind that your customers are receiving the goods as they expected, without damages, whilst keeping business costs low.

Unlike most pallet delivery businesses, we don’t charge by the pallet, but instead only charge for the pallet space you use, keeping your costs down and allowing you to streamline your business.


Over the years we have built up a strong reputation as one of the leading haulage companies in St Helens and the surrounding area. Offering flexibility to our customers, we can provide both road haulage services as well as bulk transportation across the UK and beyond. You can benefit from same and next day delivery in the UK, and we also offer our services for hazardous goods.


We understand that not every business will require a full lorry for their consignment, which is why we work to save your company time and money with our part load service. We also offer full load services for those big consignments, ensuring we meet your requirements every time.


It can be daunting trusting someone else with your consignment, which is why we offer a full track and trace service with top-end technology, keeping you in the loop at all times. For you transport tracking means that if we hit a snag or delay, you’ll be the first to know, offering both you and your customers full transparency.
