Write a briefnote on Movement of goods into cities

Besides crafts, trades and service an efficient trasport system was required for urban development.
Carrying grains and charcoal to the city on back of animals or bullock carts was time consuming and required maintainance of the animals.
To avoid this river water was used which was the cheapest mode of transportation, the canals and the natural channels were the routes of trasportation for goods.
Goats and gorges loaded with grains was transported between large and small settlements.
