In the dissertation there were developed proposals on effective management and increase of reliability of supply chain in multimodal container transportations. An important aspect in writing this research was the development of methods to improve the efficiency of multimodal transportation management in terms of minimizing the total cost of transportation and calculation of the minimum transit time for cargo delivery. In conclusion, the algorithm of decision making on organization of multimodal container transportation is offered.
