inward transportation


Explanation:
Depending on the context you have I would say this relates to transportation of goods in or transportation which takes place at an earlier stage in the process. Amont means upstream, or prior to, before some other process that is being referred to.

Hope this helps!

Inbound Transportation


Explanation:
Just think of it this way: in French amont is the side where the river begins the same way aval is the side where the river ends. Therefore towards aval (outbound); towards amont (inbound). I hope this helps.

upstream transport (see explanation)


Explanation:
upstream/downstream may actually be the company jargon. I have translated/interpreted for a major oil co. and that was the case. They talk about "upstream/downstream production" for example. Also, Termium gives:

English:Air Transport

upstream s CORRECT

French:Air Transport

en amont s CORRECT,OFFICIALLY APPROVED

OBS - Terme uniformisé par le CUTA opérations aériennes.

I should think that if it were inbound, they would have used something like "transport d'arrivée" (Termium again)
