  3. 3. SAVING ENERGY & CARBON Saving energy & carbon 0.25 MJ/TONNE-KM 30 CO2 PER TONNE-KM  CO2 emissions and fuel consumption by inland ships are just one third of those for road bound trucks. 0.8 MJ/TONNE-KM 150 CO2 PER TONNE-KM
  4. 4. HISTORIC ADVANTAGE Plenty of waterborne trade opportunities  Most people in EU live near coast or in main river valleys.
  5. 5. NO TRAFFIC JAMS Slower but reliable Rotterdam  Duisburg 24 hours Paris  Le Havre 40 hours Basel  Antwerp 48 hours Lyon  Marseille 24 hours
  6. 6. RIVER INFORMATION SERVICES Oldest means of transport using newest technology  Modern traffic management systems  Swift electronic data transfer between water and shore  In-advance and real-time exchange of information
