INTERMODAL AND MULTIMODAL TRANSPORT OF GOODS

 

Multimodal and intermodal transport are in high demand across the market, especially for medium- to long-distance shipping. Multimodal transportation of goods involves the use of several modes of transportation such as rail, ship, and truck. Different means of transport are used throughout the delivery process to create the most efficient and economic route for a given set of dispatch and delivery points. Thanks to an optimal combination of transport modes, delivery timing improves, costs fall, and cargo remains secure. Cooperation with a multimodal transport operator is typically performed, as a rule, on the basis of a single contract so as to lower the legal burden on the customer.“DLL” helps its Clients enjoy all advantages of multimodal freight shipping in Europe and internationally.

OUR CAPABILITIES
  1. Door-to-door international multimodal transportation of goods.
  2. Coordination and management of all parties involved in the multimodal cargo transportation process, including carriers, customs agents and warehouses.

Each type of cargo has its unique characteristics and requires special transportation conditions. For example, it is impossible to carry oversized goods, perishables, liquids, and several other types of goods in standard containers. Instead, full container loads (FCL) of such goods require special tank containers, refrigerators, or “open top” containers. Multimodal carriage of small batches of lightweight or low volume goods is performed in a group with other consignments (LCL). Multimodal carriage of dangerous and oversized goods is subject to special legal regulation.“DLL” takes into consideration all the specifics of European domestic rules and international legal regulation concerning multimodal transport and ensures fast and safe delivery based on the specific characteristics of each cargo type.
