With our advanced industry knowledge, we will help you optimize multimodal shipping to drive value to your business.

When you have a complex supply chain that requires using two or more shipping modes, multimodal shipping can become a valuable solution. Multimodal transportation means combining several transportation modes like truck, rail, air, or ocean to deliver cargo to the final destination. This method often lets shippers save time and costs.

Multimodal shipping is a beneficial solution for shippers who regularly ship a large volume of freight over the same lane using a unified bill of lading, saving time and efforts on shipments. Shipping multimodal through a 3PL is a good strategy for large companies with complex supply chains.

What is the difference between intermodal and multimodal?

In multimodal shipping, all of the modes are handled under the single freight contract, even if there are multiple carriers responsible for each mode. This is the primary difference between multimodal and intermodal transportation since intermodal has separate contracts behind each carrier.
