Means of Conveyance and Mode of Transport
 
Understanding means of conveyance and mode of transport in international logistics.

















On this page I will try to explain you the meaning of modes of transport and means of conveyance. We face with these expressions in ISBP 2007 under part TRANSPORT DOCUMENT COVERING AT LEAST TWO DIFFERENT MODES OF TRANSPORT 

We see Modes of Transport term on various occasions within above given part in ISBP 2007. Even just on the title of the paragraph. Whereas we find Means of Conveyance later on the same part under the article which explains transshipment and partial shipment. Let me quote you related ISBP 2007 paragraph I have been referring right below,
 
"In a multimodal transport, transhipment will occur, i.e., unloading from one means of conveyance and reloading to another means of conveyance (whether or not in different
modes of transport) during the carriage from the place of dispatch, taking in charge or shipment to the place of final destination stated in the credit."

According to ISBP 2007 transhipment can only be occurred only if,
 
•    happened during the carriage from the place of dispatch, taking in charge or shipment to the place of final destination stated in the credit.
•    cargo is unloading from one means of conveyance and reloading to another means of conveyance (whether or not in different modes of transport).

  • air transportation

Means of Conveyance is a term describing something that serves as a means of transportation, such as container, truck, aircraft etc...
