As the density of road transport network is more than ten times greater than that of railway and waterway network, and the distribution area is also wide, road transport vehicles can be "everywhere, anytime". The mobility of road transportation in terms of time is also relatively large, vehicles can be dispatched and shipped at any time, and the connection time between various links is relatively short. In particular, road transport has a strong adaptability to the amount of passenger and freight traffic. There are small (about 0.25t~1t) and large (about 200t~300t) deadweight tonnage of automobiles, which can be transported independently by a single vehicle or simultaneously by a fleet of several vehicles. This is particularly important for emergency rescue, disaster relief and military transport.
Due to the small size of cars, there is generally no need to change the load midway. In addition to running along the widely distributed road network, they can also leave the road network and go deep into factories and enterprises, rural fields, urban residential areas and other places, that is, passengers and goods can be directly transported from the gate of the origin to the gate of the destination, realizing "door-to-door" direct transportation. This is one of the characteristics that other transportation modes cannot compare with highway transportation.

In medium and short distance transportation, road transportation can realize "door-to-door" direct transportation, and passengers and goods can be directly transported to the destination without transshipment and transfer. Therefore, compared with other transportation modes, the transit time of passengers and goods is shorter and the transportation speed is faster.
