GUIYANG, May 29 (FAM) – Piggyback transportation is a form of multimodal transportation, which combines at least two of the following logistics means: road, rail, sea and air, within one freight contract for the shipper. It is particularly suited for mid- and long-distance transportation.

In the United States, truck-rail, truck-sea and rail-sea transportation links are the major transportation means for routes over 800 kilometers, while in Europe, these forms of transportation accounted for about 25 percent of all transportation means in 2015, according to Kang.
