Types of international cargo transportation

Maritime transportation

This method is reliable and inexpensive, its main advantage lies in the wide geography of shipping. The cargo is transferred in containers sized twenty or forty feet. International cargo transportation in Russia is carried out by loading the containers on cars and trains.

Rail transportation

Cargo shipping by rail to or from Europe incurs a minimal risk, as this mode of transportation is not affected by weather conditions or natural disasters. Loose and general cargoes are transported in covered versatile cars, container and bulk cargoes - in gondola cars and on platforms.

Motor cargo transportation

The advantage of this type of shipping of goods lies in the possibility of transportation without additional loading and unloading, as required, for example, when shipping to a port by sea. Loose cargoes are transported in dump trucks, other cargoes - in vans equipped with refrigerators, if necessary. Road tank vehicles are used for transporting liquids.

Multimodal cargo transportation

It is the most time-consuming transportation process involving several various transportation modes. Shipment of package cargoes from Europe pursuant to the multimodal scheme is possible in a short time despite the organization complexity. Experts of Continent Logistic will develop a transportation scheme minimizing the customer’s costs.
