What is Multimodal Transport?
Multimodal transportation refers to using multiple modes of transportation within a single supply chain or shipment.
To optimise transportation services, it effortlessly connects several modes, typically road, rail, air, and sea. By utilising the advantages of each mode, multimodal transportation aims to increase efficiency, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. It enables the best mode to take depending on the distance, speed, cost, and kind of cargo shipments for various segments of the journey. Using specialist containers or intermodal transportation equipment that can be easily moved between multiple modes of transportation is a common practice in multimodal transportation. Multimodal transportation combines several modes to provide a better connection, faster transit times, increased reliability, and a more resilient supply chain.Back
