Narrow answer: No.

Broad, somewhat tangential answer: yes, maybe. Biologists certainly talk 
about serum albumin and cortisol binding globulin as "transporters" of the 
hydrophobic small molecules that bind to them in the blood and thus move 
from tissue to tissue, but this clearly amounts to overloading of the word 
"transport" as far as we are concerned.
