Efficient, Fast, Low Cost and Environmentally Friendly While moving your cargo from one place to another, it’s important to decide the best transportation route, in order to get the deliveries from door to door. This is when the choice between multimodal and intermodal transportation comes to play.
Intermodal transport involves the transportation of freight in an intermodal container or vehicle, using different modes of transportation like rail, ship, and truck, without any handling operation of the transportation when changing trasportation modes. The method reduces cargo handling, and so improves security, reduces damage and loss of cargo, and allows transportation to be transported faster.
Reduced costs over road trucking is the key benefit for inter-continental use. This may be offset by reduced timings for road transport over shorter distances.
