Multimodal transport is a conjunction of two or more than two modes of transport services that are used to transport goods and freight from one place to another. Multimodal transport is also referred to as combined transport, as it uses several modes of transport in combination such as rail, land, water, and air to transport the product from source to destination. Multimodal transport also uses one transport bill of lading for its services and operation and optimizes lead times, reduces inventory costs, and regulates freight level costs.

Presently, on a global scale, approximately 1/4th of total global production is exported.
