What is Intermodal Transport?

Intermodal transport is the use of two or more modes of vehicle to transport goods from shipper to consignee. Special standardised containers are used for intermodal transport of cargo via road freight on trucks, trains, and ships or ferries, without any direct handling of the freight goods when changing modes. 

Lead logistics providers can utilise this transportation method to:

  • reduce cargo handling
  • improve security
  • improve eco-friendliness by reducing CO2 emissions
  • reduce the possibility of damage and/or loss
  • increase opportunity for freight to be transported to the consignee faster
