A complete range of services aiding multimodal or combined load delivery is available with AsstrA. Multimodal transportation of goods, unlike monomodal transportation, involves the usage of two or more road, air, sea or rail modes of transport. Multimodal transport arrangements support the selection of the most flexible and efficient transportation routes, cuts transportation costs, "connect" geographically remote dispatch and destination points, and achieve high delivery speeds. A multimodal transportation operator is a company that supervises all the stages and elements of a shipment. Such a working arrangement enables a shipper to solve numerous bureaucratic issues at once. AsstrA organizes and provides multimodal freight transportation in such a way that clients can enjoy all its benefits. Our experienced employees take an individual approach to every customer’s requirements. We scrutinize all load properties and work out the most preferable routes in various parts of Europe and Central Asia in accordance with all of our valued clients’ wishes. AsstrA ships any cargo to any destination with no delays. Thanks to productive cooperation with international transport companies, we offer a flexible pricing policy and provide high-quality multimodal and intermodal transportation services.
International intermodal and multimodal transportation combine the advantages of multiple transport modes. Combined transport is suitable for the following types of cargo:
- Heavyweight goods;
- Oversized goods;
- Low-density lightweight goods;
- Bulk and liquid cargo;
- Piece cargo;
- Groupage and Full Truck Load cargo;
- Dangerous goods, including 1st class ADR goods;
Each type of the above-mentioned cargo has specific characteristics requiring special treatment. Transportation of all cargo types is regulated by rules at the national and international level. Such rules define special transportation procedures depending on a good’s characteristics. In particular, perishables, liquid, and oversized goods are not to be shipped in standard containers. The multimodal full-container-load (FCL) transportation of such goods requires special packing in modified containers such as refrigerators, tank containers, and “open top” containers. The combined less-than-container-load (LCL) carriage of small batches of lightweight or low-volume goods is performed in a group with other consignments. Multimodal carriage of dangerous and oversized goods is performed on the basis of special permits and is subject to multiple legal regulations. AsstrA closely follows all changes in Russian law and international legal regulations concerning all types of cargo transportation. Our specialists can therefore provide secure and timely delivery taking into account the specific characteristics of each particular cargo.
Multimodal shipping is performed by air, sea, rail and road transportation. Our experienced specialists help select specially adapted transport and efficiently combine the advantages of multiple transport modes depending on a Client’s needs and cargo specifics.
