Intermodal transportation involves the transportation of freight in an intermodal container or vehicle, using multiple modes of transportation, without any handling of the freight itself when changing modes.

This service agreement gives broader responsibilities for transporting the cargo from India to Russia and vice-versa under a single invoice. This seamless transportation of containerised cargo will benefit both exporters and importers in India and Russia. It will also facilitate the reduction in transit time and cost of transportation compared to the existing transportation via Suez Canal.
