Abstract:  This article is dedicated to the research of multimodal transportation in the conditions of intensification of global trade. The author substantiates the position that the multimodal transportation allows to intensify world trade, reduce the cost of freight, optimally aligning the temporary convenience of air transportation with the reliability and volume of sea freight, flexibility and low cost of long-distance transport of goods by rail and the convenience of road transportation. This work examines the main trends in the development of multimodal transport in the world, including the Russian Federation.
