Multimodal transportation

The combination of two or more modes of transport for the delivery of goods is called intermodal or multimodal transportation. They have already become extremely widespread and continue to move victoriously in the market of freight forwarding services. More and more shippers understand that it is much more profitable to entrust the entire logistics process to one professional operator than to contract independently various carriers, warehouse owners, cargo handling contractors.

The logistics process can start already at the consignor’s warehouse (he does not need to deliver the goods to the station, port or airport), and end – at the consignee’s facility. This principle of delivery is called “door to door”, and its presence among the offered services is an indicator of the work of the forwarder to modern quality standards.
