- Multimodal transportation
- Sea & Air
Multimodal transportation plays a key role in transporting goods in international supply chain. TDS multimodal cargo transportation 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 loading the goods in a “multimodal equipment” at the beginning of the journey, they travelled across multiple transport modes (motor, rail, water and air) without any further handling of the goods inside until the goods reached the intended destination. A supply chain (SC) is a network of facilities and distribution options that performs the functions of procurement of materials, transformation of these materials into intermediate and finished products, and the distribution of these finished products to customers. TDS Supply Chain Management best practices to:
- Enhance reliability by removing unreliable factors
- Smooth outflows
- Manage inventory to limit both time and amount in storage
- Design product and packaging to reduce volume and weight
- Relentless pursuit of improvements
