Emergence in 3,000 B.C. of the camel train caravan travel culture, then a slow assimilation after the inventions of trains and trucks.

Camel train, or caravan: A camel train is a series of camels carrying goods or passengers, or both, in a group as part of a regular or semiregular service between two points. Although they rarely travelled faster than the walking speed of a man, camels' ability to withstand harsh conditions made them ideal for communication and trade in desert areas. Camel caravans did not require special roads and were able to follow foot paths.
