The main cities in Pakistan are connected by major highways and trucks and buses have replaced railways as the major long-distance carriers. In many rural areas, animal power is still crucial for local transportation although trucks and tractors have replaced the bullock cart for carrying the goods to market. In the cities, motorcycles, taxis, brightly colored buses, and bicycles are the common modes of transportation.

Pakistan has several international airports with flights to the Middle East, Africa, East Asia, and Europe. There are also small harbors along the coast where ships transport commodities to Persian Gulf states [24].
