Shipping good internationally is a complex logistical process with options to transport by air, land and sea. That’s why for flexible and versatile shipping for all kinds of cargo, you need a freight forwarder that offers multi modal transportation.
Multi modal transportation involves choosing the right transport method for a particular phase of the journey to maximise efficiency. Thus depending on circumstances, the cargo might first be transported by road to a sea port where it’s shipped to another destination. There it might be carried by plane on the final phase of its journey.
As you can appreciate, such a transport method demands the finest logistics from your freight forwarder but the results are well worth it. You reap the benefits of getting the most suitable components of existing transport infrastructure in the optimum combination.
Melbourne freight forwarders with the logistical resources to combine all available methods of transportation can offer you such benefits as optimal routing (with commensurate time savings) along with the best price.

To ensure the most timely and cost effective multi modal transportation, the freight forwarder needs to constantly monitor the transport situation is all countries in which it needs to operate. It needs to be constantly aware of matters such as shipping costs, routes, tariffs and various legislative factors in each region. Only by doing this can it offer a solid and versatile transportation setup.
