The Biggest Modes of Transportation Built by Humans

The biggest modes of transportation built by humans are ships, with some capable of carrying hundreds of thousands of tons of cargo. The largest ship ever built, the Prelude FLNG, is a floating liquefied natural gas facility that is 488 meters long and displaces 600,000 tons. It is so large that it has its own postcode and is registered as a ship rather than an oil rig. Other large modes of transportation include aircraft, with the largest being the Antonov An-225, which has a wingspan of 88 meters and can carry up to 250,000 kilograms of cargo. The largest land vehicle is the Bagger 288, a bucket-wheel excavator used in open-pit mining, which is 225 meters long, 96 meters high, and weighs 13,500 tons.
