Intermodal Transport

  • Security
  • Less cargo handling
  • Semi-trailers
  • Sea containers

circle_img_innerIntermodal transportation is a freight transport chain moving cargo in transportation units (containers, semi-trailers or swap bodies) using two or more transportation modes without handling cargo during transit between shipper and receiver. The major intermodal transportation unit is the standard 40 foot sea container.

In our network, containers are shipped to Saint Petersburg port or alternatively via Finnish ports in South Finland or the Estonian port of Tallinn. Russian has seen tremendous growth in the semi-trailer sector of the intermodal transportation business. The trailers are carried (without a driver) over the Baltic and the North Sea on ro-ro vessels. On land, the movement of intermodal transportation units is managed by local transport companies.

The benefits of intermodal transportation include minimized cargo handling, load security and optimized time in transit. In most cases, cargo is handled only twice; once when the transportation unit is loaded, and a second time when it is unloaded. As cargo handling is minimized, so is the risk of damage or physical loss. Further, the transportation unit is very seldom opened when in transit. Transportation systems are designed to handle transportation units. This minimizes stop times as all transportation legs are scheduled in advance. We offer intermodal transportation for single or group transportation units all over the country.
