International Modes of Transport


The main objectives of this Learning Unit are to analyze these 4 modes of transport and their characteristics as well as the transport documents required for each mode of transport and how to complete them

Learning Unit Summary

In recent years air freight has been developing rapidly and air carriers have been able to offer an ever widening range of services. Freight costs can be paid in advance, at destination or against reimbursement. IATA (the International Air Transport Association) has simplified the handling of export documentation for air freight and has unified tariffs and conditions of carriage.

Road freight is the only mode of transport perfectly suited to provide door-to-door services, that is the goods can be collected at the exporter’s premises and delivered directly to the importer by the same trailer.

Today, Rail transport is one of the safest modes of transport. It can carry various consignments from small packages to containers. In terms of cargo capacity rail transport can compete with marine transport.
Carriage by multimodal transport is the continuous movement of goods by more than one means of transport (marine, land, etc.) under one and the same document and one contract of carriage. All of these modes of transport will be analysed in detail in this learning unit.
