Multimodal freight, also known as Combined transport, is the transportation of goods under a single contract, performed with at least twon different means of transport, shipping goods from one particular place to the assigned destination.
Multimodal freight is rapidly developing and becoming more popular because of the following reasons:
- It is cost-efficient, since it combines the advantages of every single means of transport: the flexibility, frequency, simplification, just-in-time.
- With the current increase in international trade, multimodal freight solves the problem of being overloaded in other single means of transport (it balances the contribution of each means of transport.)
The multimodal freight services provided by Traco includes: road transport, rail transport, ship transport and air transport.
