The objective of the paper was to determine the efficiency of transport means on the example of the selected farms of the southern Poland. Operation efficiency of means was expressed through performance of transports and the amount of work time and labour inputs. The research covered 9 farms located in Małopolska region. Based on the analysis of work time structure and labour inputs and performance of transport means operation, one may clearly state that the work efficiency of the selected means for the transport of the analysed load is very low. The highest labour inputs were incurred for the transport of vegetables with a tractor with a tractor wagon and the lowest for transport of fertilizers with a tractor with a trailer. The set composed of a tractor and two trailers achieved the highest performance among the analysed means through high loading capacity and a high index of load capacity use.
