Efficient logistics allows a business to solve two problems: to reduce shipping costs and to receive cargo in due time. In 8 out of 10 cases, these goals can be achieved by multimodal delivery, i.e. transportation when all types of logistics lines are involved: sea, rail and road
Meridian Line is an arrangement of multimodal cargo transportation by one transport company. We guarantee the safety of your cargo along the entire route and prescribe this provision in a contract. Создаем надлежащие условия перевозки на всех транспортных линиях. We create the best conditions for transportation by any shipping lines. We adhere to agreed terms due to the well-coordinated work of the entities involved in the logistics scheme.
Combined transportation is arranged under one end-to-end contract. It is relevant for a business that conducts foreign economic activity and has partners abroad. For delivery on the route of Moscow-Vladivostok, you can use road transport, but if cooperating with China you have to use various lines.
Example. The most popular option for multimodal transportation to Moscow is based on the following scheme: sea freight China-Vladivostok – transshipment at the railway or a port – dispatching by rail to Moscow – delivery by road to customer’s warehouse. Logistics for many of our customers is arranged according to a similar scheme, and the advantages of combined delivery are obvious.

Multimodal cargo transportation can combine all means of transport but the main and common ones are deliveries by Sea + Rail + Road.
As a rule, multimodal transportation is carriage in a high-capacity container which has a fairly high degree of protection against damage, and each point of container transshipment (whether a port or a railway station) has all required equipment so that the container is not even inclined, without mentioning any damage. Consolidated cargo without containers is, of course, recommended to be additionally reinforced with a crate and special materials. We can provide this service both in Russia and in the country where you want to pick up your cargo at an affordable price.
