In case of multimodal transportion, various modes of transport are used to deliver cargo. In this case, motor transport, railway communication, delivery by air and sea transport in any combination facilitating fast delivery of cargo can be used. On the way the cargo can be repeatedly overloaded at various terminals.
A logistics chain of transport of cargo is built by a single company, which is fully responsible for transport and safety of cargo until delivery to recipient. Regardless of the number of types of transport means, terminals and other conditions involved in cargo transport, only one cargo transport contract is signed. A single through-rate is established for the whole route.
