Definition of Multimodal Transport
Multimodal cargo transport is the movement of cargo using more than one mode of transportation in a continuous / seamless journey, under one contract, using one consignment document.

After the goods are loaded in a "multimodal equipment" at the beginning of the journey, they travel across multiple transport modes (motor, rail, water and air) without any further handling of the goods inside until the goods reach the intended destination.

What is Economics?
Economics is the study of the allocation of resources, that is, how, why and to what effect market and non-market institutions (such as governments) distribute goods and services.

Economics uses abstract mathematical models to capture the essential features of more complex real world processes and tests the validity of these models against available economic data. Studying Economics is therefore about developing problem-solving skills, including mathematical and statistical techniques as well as more general analytical skills.

Although the behavior of individuals is important, Economics also addresses the collective behavior of businesses and industries, governments and countries, and the globe as a whole.
