Multimodal Service

Multimodal transport (also known as combined transport) is the transportation of goods under a single contract, but performed with at least two different means of transport the carrier is liable (in a legal sense) for the entire carriage, even though it is performed by several different modes of transport (by rail, sea and road, for example). The carrier does not have to possess all the means of transport, and in practice usually does not; the carriage is often performed by sub-carriers (referred to in legal language as "actual carriers"). The carrier responsible for the entire carriage is referred to as a multimodal transport operator, or MTO. 

     By offering an optimal combination of short sea, road, rail and barge services JMS is able to deliver a reliable, sustainable and cost effective transport solution. Our door-to-door service integrates collection, shipment and delivery into a seamless transport solution. Experienced staff and modern equipment assure that the cargo is delivered as agreed, while the customer has a single point of contact for the entire transport chain. Besides Door-to-Door services JMS also offers Quay-to-Quay and feeder services. This service offers customers the possibility to use JMS's extensive shipping network with their own equipment. Tank operators, bulk operators and deepsea lines benefit from the fixed and regular sailings across the world.
