Multimodal transport is a very interesting approach that solves a big part of cargo mobility problems.
Combining private and state transport in a multimodal transport system offers the opportunity to capitalize the best rates and transit time possible.
As many understand, multimodal transport refers to a transport system usually operated by one carrier with more than one mode of transport under control or ownership of one operator. It involves the use of more than one means of transport such as a combination of truck, railcar, railways, aeroplane or ship in succession to each e.g.a. container line which operates both a ship and rail system of double stack trains.
The needs / advantages of multimodal transport:
e.g. of multimodal transport system :
One out of gauge power transformer was loaded on a platform wagon till Constanta port; the transbord was made on a Ro-Ro vessel till Iskenderun port, and afterwards the trafo was loaded on a special trailer till Jordan.
