Transport of goods and merchandise is not undertaken by the State Transport Organisation. Besides railways [Statistics of goods transport by railways are given in the section on Railways.], goods transport is in the hands of private owners of motor trucks. The total number of goods vehicles, both public and private carriers, registered and licensed in the district was 683 in 1962. Of these, 546 were motor trucks and 137 were transport trailers. Freight rates are not determined by any official body, but are allowed to be governed by the principles of demand and supply.

Motor trucks in this district carry goods and merchandise to and from distant places, such as, Bombay, Poona, Chhindwara, Betul, Itarsi, Khandwa, Nagpur, Chanda, Yeotmal, Akola, Jalgaon, Jabalpur, etc.

Due to the shortage of railway wagons and the delay involved in railway transport, businessmen and traders find it convenient to transport their goods by motor trucks.
