MULTIMODAL TRANSPORT: WHAT IS IT, AND WHAT ARE ITS BENEFITS?

Multimodal transport uses two or more types of transport to move goods from their origin to their final destination, whether by air, land, sea, or rail. It links several modes of transportation, improving efficiency and reducing the possibility of losses. In any transaction involving the transfer of goods, especially at the international level, it is common to use several means of transport best suited to the characteristics of the routes and the cargo

The OTM is the person who assumes responsibility for the entire transport chain. He manages and coordinates the means of transport that will be involved in the transfer of the goods, choosing the best option for each route

This is one of the most used international transports, and these are some of the benefits that we can find:

  • Reduces costs: This increases profits, optimizes all operations, and chooses the best routes and the most efficient transport.
  • It is flexible: It allows multiple transportation options by land, sea, or air. Optimal routes are chosen, and cargo capacity is better utilized.
  • Shortens times: The most appropriate, reliable, and fast mode of transport is chosen at any given time to streamline processes and be more effective.
  • Reduces risks: Having a single contract for all transports unifies responsibility and facilitates possible claims.
