The current research presents quantitative data and communication network design analysis for an international multimodal transportation company. The proposed communication network is considered as a hierarchical organization from the additive manufacturing sector. The authors define the main management levels, the information transfer nodes and the direction of data displacement and design the general structure of the network using oriented graphs. For the quantitative analysis, centrality
