Multimodal transport refers to a transport system operated by one carrier with more than one mode of transport under the control or ownership of one operator. In simple terms, it means, carriage of goods by two or more modes of transport such as a combination of truck, train, and airplane or ship in succession to each other. In international trade due to its very nature, goods indispensably pass through the hands of more than one carrier and one mode of transportation. Under conventional system of transportation, consignee enters into separate contracts with each other where the liability of each carrier is limited to the service provided by him. On the other hand, under multi-modal system only the consignor or his agents have to make all arrangements required for trans-shipment of goods from one mode to another, so much so that this even includes warehousing of such goods i.e. the carrier organizing the transport takes responsibility for the entire door-to-door transport and issues a multimodal transport document.
