International shipments sometimes require the cargo to be transported using more than one transportation vehicle due to geographical conditions, delivery times, or economic conditions. This requires the use of multimodal transport as an integrated system. In multimodal transportation, a single transportation contract is prepared for all transportation vehicles used between loading and destination points.
