You can trust us with multimodal shipping
When multimodal shipping should be used?
Multimodal freight transportation is a mixed method of cargo transportation, in which several types of vehicles are involved.

Delivery is carried out basing on one document and the whole responsibility for successful transportation is on the shipping company during all stages. If you plan to cross borders, transportation is classified as international.

In multimodal transportation usually the most suitable types of transport are used and combined: sea and river vessels, airplanes, railway trains and trucks. The peculiarity of such a service is that all stages of transportation are controlled by one organizer - the selected carrier. Control can be both passive (documentation) and active (monitoring, logistics, transport choice).

The interest of customers in multimodal transportation is due to factors such as:
  • no direct routes between sender and destination;
  • it is important to deliver the goods as quickly as possible at the right price - the cost of multimodal transportation depends on the transport used, the characteristics of the cargo and the distance of the route;
  • you have to deliver the goods to different vehicles from various suppliers
In this case responsibility is dissipated, there is no single party who guarantees the safety of the cargo. In multimodal transportation, each stage is controlled by the transport company with which the contract is signed.
