Multimodal transport of goods

Multimodal transportation is a method of goods delivery that involves a wide range of transport infrastructure and different types of transport, from road to sea and air. A carrier makes a detailed route using terminals, consolidation warehouses, ports, airports and similar objects.

International multimodal transportation of goods is the best option when you need to transport goods over a long distance. The main advantage of this service is a high level of coordination in the actions of all participants in the transportation. The delivery system works as a complex, ensuring the effectiveness of the solution of the tasks.

Advantages and features of multimodal transportation

A single contract is concluded for the whole process of transportation. It does not depend on the number of types of transport used and the number of transfer points – a single fare applies for the entire length of the route. In case of multimodal transportation of goods, the organizer assumes full responsibility for passing each section of the route.

Multimodal transport of goods makes it possible to use the advantages of different vehicles. To overcome different parts of the route, optimal transport is selected, which reduces the time and cost of delivery.

The organization of multimodal transport is suitable for interaction between countries that are remote from each other. Thanks to that, operational delivery of goods to any part of the world becomes real.
