Multimodal transportation is a type of cargo transportation that involves the use of multiple goods for the transport of one cargo. For example, it may be carriage by road, followed by air travel, and then by sea. In the multimodal transport it can take from two to an endless number of types of transport in a different sequence. Multimodal transportation is necessary if delivery of cargo in one mode of transport is impossible or it is necessary to deliver the goods quickly. In the first case, this may be the transportation of goods between continents, in this case, without sea or air freight can not be delivered. In the second case, road freight to the airport, and then air cargo will greatly reduce the speed of delivery of your cargo. At first, the goods are delivered to the necessary type of road transport (trawl, container truck, truck, refrigerator) to a seaport or airport, then the goods are transported by the second mode of transport, and at the point of arrival (the seaport or airport) there is a further transportation of the third mode of transport to the final destination . In the planning of multimodal freight, a large number of aspects are taken into account, such as the type of cargo, the urgency of the delivery, the location of the point of departure and the point of delivery, and also often offers several delivery options with different cost and types of attracted transport, which allows you to find the most suitable combination.
International rail freight is the most reliable, inexpensive and safe form of transportation. This type of cargo delivery has several advantages over airfreight, delivery by sea and even trucking. The warehouses practically do not depend on weather conditions, move quickly and allow to calculate the cost of services satisfying the request for each corresponding shipment. To date, international rail transportation is absolutely justified, occupying a weighty niche in the field of transportation of goods and cargoes. Thanks to this, almost unlimited possibilities for the intended volumes of shipment, as well as through an extensive rail network, make it possible to carry out even the most difficult, at first glance, ordering. It is not necessary to let out a number of advantages, as well as the fact of constant regularity of transportation. Also, by means of transportation of goods by rail, you can transport almost any type of cargo – from loose materials to food. Modern refrigerator cars will save the quality of perishable products while saving. The cost of rail freight is quite small thanks to the very high load capacity.
When planning freight transport by rail, consider the following:
-Railway transportation of goods is well suited for deliveries over long distances of liquid and bulk cargoes, as well as heavy machinery, containers.
-Railway appropriate to use in the organization of multimodal transport. With good logistics, you can significantly increase the flexibility of the organization, while not reducing its overwhelming efficiency and enviable stability of the message. So the container that arrived at the port is overloaded to a car, delivered to the railway station, and then it goes to the destination where the unloading will take place, or once again a car will be needed. Such a comprehensive organization of transportation allows you to optimize the cost and time of delivery of goods.
Delivery of goods by rail involves clear planning, timely signing of contracts for the delivery of freight, the harmonization of tariffs for transportation, prices for additional services – a set of rules and measures, so that this reliable transport mode has realized its benefits.
Container shipping by the sea is considered to be one of the most inexpensive and perspective types of logistics services. Both big companies and small companies rely on them. Sea freight is specific because it is a priori international. Like any kind of transportation across the border, they require an appropriate package of documents. Container shipping, like any type of cargo transportation, has its own typical features.
