Multimodal Transportation

Multimodal transport is the transportation of goods under a single contract, but performed with at least two different modes of transport. The carrier responsible for the entire carriage is referred to as a multimodal transport operator (MTO).

When it comes to this mode of transportation, there is more than one kind of vehicle necessary to take the goods to their final destination, by the use of trucks, trains, ships, airplanes or some other mean of transport for the delivery.

Highland’s advantage of Multimodal Transport lies in the most efficient combination of multiple means of transport, whilst optimizing deadlines, cutting back on inventory costs, therefore keeping the costs of the merchandise under control. The combination of these also results in high environmental sustainability, since Multimodal Transport reduces the environmental footprint of transportation.
Highland is making such transport under one transport document combining of air-road, sea-road and sea-rail-road.
