Multimodal transportation

VED Agent offers services in organization of shipment by several modes of transportation (so called combined, or multimodal transportation).

UN Convention on international combined transportation (1980) clarifies that such transportation is the transportation of cargo by two or more modes of transportation by virtue of the treaty of the combined transportation from one country, where goods enter the supervision of the operator of combined transportation, to the appointed place of delivery in another country. Multimodal transportation provides house/house delivery of cargo, i.e. from shipper’s warehouse to consignee’s warehouse. Such transportation is applicable when it’s impossible to make a delivery via one mode of transportation.
 
Multimodal transportation is illustrated by an extensively used scheme, whereby cargo is collected from shipper and is being delivered by motor transport to the nearest seaport. Then cargo is transferred to the vessel and is being moved to the port of importing country. Transhipment of cargo to rail or motor transport takes place in that port and cargo is being delivered to the consignee. Usually cargo is transported in reusable containers, thereby safety of cargo is guaranteed and damage risk at transhipment is minimized.
