Multimodal transportation 2021-06-20 09:31:24 Multimodal transportation is widely used in international cargo transportation, also known as international multimodal transportation. It means that according to actual transportation needs, Guangzhou Freight Company organically combines different transportation methods into integrated transportation. Through one consignment, one billing, one document, and one insurance, multiple actual carriers jointly complete the transportation of goods. The whole way of transportation. According to the different nature of the work involved in multimodal transport, its members can be divided into two parts, the actual transportation process and the organizational business process. The actual transportation process is completed by the actual carriers participating in the multimodal transport, and the transportation organization business process is completed by the multimodal transport carrier. In theory, there can be dozens of multimodal transport, but the following are commonly used internationally: 1. Road-rail combined transport is the most widely used multimodal transport, also known as piggyback transportation. It refers to the transportation of truck trailers on the railway flatbed, that is, the long-distance transportation between cities is completed by the railway, and the transportation in the remaining cities is completed by trucks, and the transportation distance is usually longer than the normal truck transportation route. This combined transportation method combines the convenience and flexibility of truck transportation with the economic characteristics of long-distance railway transportation. Freight is usually lower than pure truck transportation, and shippers can enjoy long-distance door-to-door service at a reasonable price. Therefore, the piggyback has become the most popular multimodal transportation method. 2. Land-sea combined transportation Land-sea combined transportation is also called fish back transportation. It refers to the combined transportation method composed of land transportation (railway, highway) and sea transportation, that is, truck trailers, train carriages or containers are reloaded on ships for long-distance transportation. The logistics from Guangzhou to Shangluo usually ship the goods to the seaport by train from the inland place of departure, and then transport the goods to the destination by ship. This method is one of the cheapest transportation methods because it uses water transportation for long-distance transportation. 3. Land-air combined transportation Land-air combined transportation is a combined transportation method that combines land and air transportation. The usual practice is to transport the goods from the mainland to the airport by car, then by air from the airport to the transit point, and then by car and land to the destination. The flexibility of the service provided in this way can be compared with that of a direct road. 4. Land bridge transportation Land bridge transportation refers to a multimodal transportation method that uses railway or highway systems as bridges to connect ocean transportation at both ends of the continent. At present, the main land bridges in the world are: the Siberian Land Bridge, the New Eurasian Land Bridge, and the Gulf of Mexico Land Bridge. Among them, the Siberian Continental Bridge is a multimodal transportation method from Japan through Russia to Europe, Iran and other places; the new Eurasian Continental Bridge refers to the Lianyungang Port in eastern China as a starting point, via the Longhai Railway artery or the Lianyungang-Khorgos Highway. The main line leaves Khorgos in Yining, Xinjiang, China, enters Kazakhstan and connects with Novosibirsk and Almaty railways to Western Europe, and a land bridge that ends at the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Compared with the Siberian Continental Bridge, the New Eurasian Continental Bridge has a greater advantage. It significantly shortens the cargo transportation distance between Asia and Europe. For example, from the ports of Kobe, Japan or Busan, South Korea to Tehran, Iran, through the New Eurasian Continental Bridge, the distance on the road is 9,997 kilometers, and the distance on the Siberian Continental Bridge is 13,322 kilometers, and the difference between the front and the back is 3' 5 kilometers. In summary, Guangzhou Carrying out multimodal transportation on the Fuquan logistics line is conducive to taking advantage of comprehensive transportation, providing economic and social benefits, helping to tap transportation potential, accelerating cargo turnover, and improving transportation efficiency. The development of multimodal transportation is for both carriers and consignments. Everyone has great benefits, simplifying procedures and increasing options.
