Intermodal transport

Sustainable transport

Reflecting our focus on sustainability and the environment in addition to cost-efficiency, we will often advise you to opt for intermodal transport. When goods need to travel long distances over land, for example, intermodal transport is a highly suitable alternative to road transport.


Intermodal transport options

Whenever possible, we transport containers from the ports to our warehouses on inland waterways, by barge. And to deliver goods to the European Hinterland or destinations further afield, we often transport them by rail. 


You are always assured of efficient intermodal transport thanks to our large network of hubs and container terminals throughout Europe. In addition, Hitachi Transport System can organise pick-up and delivery if required. 


Would you like help with organising intermodal transport? It's easy to contact us.

Benefits of intermodal transport

Compared with road transport, intermodal transport offers you the following advantages:


  • Lower costs
  • Safer
  • Quicker
  • More environmentally friendly

Sea-Air: an attractive alternative

If you find sea freight transit times too long and air freight too expensive, why not consider Sea-Air? Since it combines the benefits of both modes of transport, this can represent an attractive alternative.


You can be sure that your products will arrive at their destinations on time yet at very competitive rates, and a single through bill of lading eliminates complex paperwork.
