Description of the Online Course: Multimodal Transport.

Multimodal transport: is the transport of cargo units with a different modes of transport (maritime, land, rail, etc.), under a single document and formalising a single transport contract.

The definition according to the United Nations (UN) Convention on International Multimodal Transport of Goods:

“The transport of goods using at least two different modes of transport, under a multimodal transport contract, from a place located in a country in which the multimodal transport operator takes the products under its custody, to another place designated for delivery, located in a different country.

The operations of pick-up and delivery of goods carried out in the performance of an unimodal transport contract, as defined in such contract, shall not be considered as international multimodal transport.”

Multimodal transport

The key figure is the OTM (Multimodal Transport Operator), a natural or legal person that implements a multimodal transport contract acting as principal, assuming responsibility for compliance with the contract.

For multimodal transport, the document used is the FIATA Multimodal Bill of Lading (CTBL). This document is very similar to the B / L (Bill of Lading) of maritime transport.

  4. Delivery periods and carriage charges are reduced
