Transport Management - Qp2 - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    For the transport of goods, the services should have the qualities of: (Select three)

    • A.

      Speed

    • B.

      Safety

    • C.

      Fixed cost

    • D.

      Regularity

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Speed
    B. Safety
    D. Regularity
    Explanation
    The transport of goods requires three important qualities: speed, safety, and regularity. Speed is necessary to ensure that goods are delivered quickly and efficiently, meeting the demands of customers and minimizing delays. Safety is crucial to protect the goods from damage or loss during transportation, ensuring that they arrive in good condition. Regularity is important to maintain a consistent schedule for the transport of goods, allowing businesses to plan and coordinate their operations effectively. Fixed cost, while important in some cases, is not directly related to the qualities required for the transport of goods.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    ______ reduces the financial cost which is attached to goods in transit.

    • A.

      Frequency

    • B.

      Speed

    • C.

      Responsibility

    • D.

      Regularity

    Correct Answer
    B. Speed
    Explanation
    Speed reduces the financial cost which is attached to goods in transit because faster transportation allows for quicker delivery times. This means that goods spend less time in transit, reducing the risk of damage, theft, or spoilage. Additionally, faster transportation can result in lower inventory holding costs, as goods can be delivered more quickly and efficiently. Overall, speed is an important factor in minimizing the financial cost associated with goods in transit.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Transport facilities must have a capacity which is adequate for all reasonable demands.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Transport facilities must have a capacity that is adequate for all reasonable demands. This means that the transport system should be able to accommodate the needs of all users and handle the expected level of demand without causing overcrowding or delays. If the capacity is insufficient, it can lead to inefficiencies, inconvenience, and dissatisfaction among users. Therefore, it is important for transport facilities to be designed and maintained with a capacity that can meet the reasonable demands of the users.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    ______ with regard to transport service means that the movements are either at evenly spaced intervals or at known times.

    • A.

      Regularity

    • B.

      Comprehensiveness

    • C.

      Comfort

    • D.

      Acceptable cost

    Correct Answer
    A. Regularity
    Explanation
    Regularity with regard to transport service means that the movements are either at evenly spaced intervals or at known times. This means that the transport service operates on a consistent and predictable schedule, allowing passengers to plan their journeys accordingly. Regularity is important as it ensures that passengers can rely on the transport service to be available when they need it, reducing waiting times and improving overall efficiency. Additionally, regularity also helps in reducing congestion and improving traffic flow by evenly distributing the movement of vehicles.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    In relation to the transport of persons, some distinction may be made between those who travel for work reasons and those who travel for pleasure.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that there is a difference between individuals who travel for work purposes and those who travel for leisure. It implies that the transportation needs and experiences of these two groups may vary.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Many transport services are tied to variable routes.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Transport services are not necessarily tied to variable routes. While some transport services may have fixed routes, others may have variable routes based on factors such as demand, traffic conditions, or specific customer requests. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that all transport services are tied to variable routes.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The normal habits of people are to travel as a "consolidation" of one or two persons, and any change is by consignment or two or more persons into a party.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that people normally travel alone or in pairs, and any change in this pattern involves more than two people traveling together. The correct answer is false because this statement is not necessarily true for all people. While some individuals may prefer to travel alone or in pairs, others may enjoy traveling in larger groups or with their families. Therefore, the statement does not accurately reflect the normal habits of all people when it comes to travel.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A failure to consolidate traffic will waste capacity because vehicles are idle.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If traffic is not consolidated, it means that vehicles are not efficiently organized and are often idle, leading to wasted capacity. This can happen when there is no proper coordination or planning in place to optimize the flow of traffic. Idle vehicles take up space on the road without contributing to the movement of traffic, resulting in a waste of capacity. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    A small range of traffic may be handled by vehicles of approximately the same dimensions and weight carrying capacity.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A small range of traffic cannot be handled by vehicles of approximately the same dimensions and weight carrying capacity. This statement implies that vehicles of different sizes and weight carrying capacities are required to handle different levels of traffic. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Advantages of small vehicles includes: (Select three)

    • A.

      Loading and unloading time per movement can be less, but not necessarily less per passenger of unit of goods handled.

    • B.

      More frequent movement with full loads is possible.

    • C.

      Greater mixtures of traffic may be necessary to provide full loads.

    • D.

      Specialisation of purpose may not create excessive idle time.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Loading and unloading time per movement can be less, but not necessarily less per passenger of unit of goods handled.
    B. More frequent movement with full loads is possible.
    D. Specialisation of purpose may not create excessive idle time.
    Explanation
    Small vehicles have several advantages. Firstly, loading and unloading time per movement can be reduced, which can be beneficial for efficiency. However, this advantage may not necessarily apply to each passenger or unit of goods handled. Secondly, small vehicles allow for more frequent movement with full loads, enabling faster transportation. Lastly, the specialization of purpose in small vehicles does not lead to excessive idle time, ensuring that the vehicles are utilized effectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    In the carriage of passengers, complete or partial absence of a full load on the return journey may be due to several general conditions.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that there can be situations where the carriage of passengers may not have a full load on the return journey. This can be attributed to various general conditions such as fewer passengers traveling back, drop-offs at different destinations, or different schedules for the return trip. Therefore, the statement is true as it acknowledges the possibility of a complete or partial absence of a full load on the return journey for passenger carriages.
