The Ministry of Transport was previously known as the Ministry of Communications (although the name is the same in Thai), and was founded in 1941. Its English name was changed to the Ministry of Transport in 2002, when the Reorganisation of Ministries, Government Agencies and Departments, B.E. 2545 Act came into force. It stipulated that the Ministry of Transport (the former Ministry of Communications) would have overall responsibility for transportation, transportation-related businesses, traffic planning, and transport infrastructure development.
The MOT is composed of ministry departments and profit-making state enterprises.
