    Multimodal (combined) transportation — a phased delivery of one cargo with several types of transport. For example, at first cargo is delivered with aircraft, then sent by railroad, and finally transported to the final destination with truck. Depending on logistical tasks, options can be combined making smoothly operating «chain».

    Multimodal Transportation

    The best option for customers — the «chain» from the beginning to the end is controlled by a single operator by single contract without the involvement of third parties. This «one operator only» approach favorably affects the cost of the work, frees customers from the paperwork, eases the planning of routes and significantly accelerates the delivery of cargo in general.

    Development of routes in the multimodal transportation requires not only high professionalism, but also an individual approach. Air freight is the best way to transport perishable products, although it is more expensive. In cases where the speed of supply is not that important, it is preferable to use more economical types: sea freight and road freight.

    In most cases, raw materials are transported in containers, but some cargoes (such as lumber) require special equipment (in this case — eurotrucks or roll-trailers). Working through these (and many others) nuances is necessary to deliver various raw materials on time.
