    Advantages of the road transport

    • - enhanced mobility;
    • - individual route and schedule;
    • - extensive road network making it possible to deliver goods to the most distant corners of the country;
    • - cargo escort by a freight forwarder;
    • - cost-effectiveness;

    Rail freight offers a year-round
    delivery of cargoes over an extensive railway network.

    Advantages of the rail freight:

    • — low transportation costs, especially for long-distance transportation in remote areas;
    • — capable of carrying big volumes of cargoes per voyage;
    • — not dependent on weather conditions and seasonal features of the regions;
    • — high-capacity transshipment points, loading and unloading terminals;
    • — almost no restrictions on the cargo weight and composition.

    Based on our long-term experience,
    we may conclude that cooperation with one partner saves time,
    money and spares the customer’s nerves!

    The main advantage of multimodal transportation is that it there is only one person responsible for the services rendered. Efficient routes involving the most cost-effective vehicles in the relevant destinations.

    Routes— door-to-door delivery with due regard of the transport infrastructure, environmental conditions, unloading / loading capacity in the region, regardless of the transportation distance.

    Cost- if delivery time comes first, then the price will be higher; however, if you give priority to transportation costs, then we will develop the most cost-effective route, which is likely to take slightly more time.

    For example, river transportation usually costs 30–40% cheaper than road or railway transportation (the difference may even be twofold or higher for separate directions).
