Interesting to know!


Combined freight means transportation of an item by several modes of transport. All road, air and sea modes of transportation can be combined.

In fact, almost all transportations can be referred to as a combined freight: from the warehouse the cargo is delivered to station A by truck, then it is packed into the container, sealed and sent for loading, let us say, into the aircraft. On arrival to the airport of destination the container with cargo is placed on the railway platform and afterwards dispatched to the consignee.

Between different stations it may be necessary to make a temporary storage of the cargo. Usually, the transportation company used to transport the cargo has warehouses in the junction points.

Only haulage can be made without involving additional vehicles.

Why is it important to pack the cargo into the container in case of combined freight?

When changing the vehicles, the cargo can be damaged. Mechanical damage of cargo can be avoided if it is secured with reliable cover protecting it from negative consequences during handling of cargo.

Cargo also should be insured before shipment as this will give you confidence that no any material expenses caused by cargo handling are expected.


Multimodal and intermodal freight

Multimodal freight means usage of several modes of transport in any combination. It may be used because of impossibility to use other method of transportation of the cargo or in order to save costs or time. All journey of the cargo is provided by a single document.

While developing the route of cargo movement the overall budget and allowed period for transportation is considered. In case of an urgent delivery air transport has to be involved and that increases transportation cost. If terms are not urgent, then it is more reasonable to choose sea transport that will save significant costs.

Usually, the more the number of so called «legs» (stations of temporary location of cargo on different points along the route) is, the lower the overall transportation cost and the longer the term of delivery is.

Development of the plan of cargo movements should be entrusted to a specialized company possessing necessary data about the time of departure and arrival of all vehicles and information about the financial aspect of the issue. Such a company will not only develop the route but also regulate all transportation-forwarding issues.

Intermodal freight has only one difference from the multimodal freight: not one, but several parties participate in the transportation of cargo. The number of shipping documents depends directly on the number of carriers.


Combined cargo freight is one of the simplest ways to reduce to minimum the temporary and financial costs for transportation of cargo from any spot on the globe. The major issue is to choose the optimal route and the set of vehicles.
